In this work, we presented the characterization of 3 dB branch type directional couplers by using High-Tc superconducting thin films. To do this, we deposited YBCO superconducting thin films on MgO substrates by using rf-magnetron sputtering techniques. The designed center frequency was 408 MHz and the designed passband was 20MHz. Also we designed 3 dB Power difference and 90° of phase difference between port 3 and port 4. The even and odd mode analysis were used to characterize our directional couplers and em Sonnet (full wave analysis program) was utilized to the optimum design. We reported experimental results, including a center frequency, passband, half power characteristics and phase differences. We confirmed that experimental results were in good agreements with characterization by using full wave analysis program.
