Claims

1. A microwave signal generator comprising:
a magnetron to generate a microwave signal;
a coupler to receive the microwave signal generated by the magnetron and to send the microwave signal to a load; and
a band-pass filter to receive the microwave signal from the coupler and to filter the microwave signal to obtain a signal from an oscillation frequency band of the magnetron, wherein the band-pass filter feeds the signal from the oscillation frequency band back to the magnetron in order to fix an oscillation frequency of the magnetron.
2. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the band-pass filter is a DR (Dielectric Resonator) filter.
3. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the magnetron, the coupler and the band-pass filter are connected by a coaxial cable or a waveguide.
4. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the coupler is a coupler using any one coupling method out of center loop coupling method, halo loop coupling method, segment fed coupling method, strap fed coupling method and waveguide coupling method.
5. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the coupler is disposed within the load.
6. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the signal from the oscillation frequency band is a main signal corresponding to an intrinsic oscillation frequency band of the magnetron.
7. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 1, wherein the load is an electrode-less bulb having a light emitting material.
8. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 7, wherein the microwave signal from the coupler is used to heat the light emitting material of the electrode-less bulb.
9. A microwave signal generator comprising:
a magnetron integrally coupled to a load, wherein the magnetron generates a microwave signal;
a coupler disposed within the load, wherein the coupler receives the microwave signal generated by the magnetron and sends the microwave signal to the load; and
a band-pass filter for passing only the microwave signal of an intrinsic oscillation frequency band of the magnetron from the microwave signal received by the coupler and the microwave signal of the intrinsic oscillation frequency band is fed back to the magnetron.
10. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 9, wherein the band-pass filter is a DR (Dielectric Resonator) filter.
11. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 9, wherein the magnetron, the coupler and the band-pass filter are connected by a coaxial cable or a waveguide.
12. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 9, wherein the coupler is a coupler using any one coupling method out of center loop coupling method, halo loop coupling method, segment fed coupling method, strap fed coupling method and waveguide coupling method.
13. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 9, wherein the load is an electrode-less bulb having a light emitting material.
14. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 13, wherein the microwave signal from the coupler is used to heat the light emitting material of the electrode-less bulb.
15. A microwave signal generator comprising:
a magnetron to generate a microwave signal;
a filter to receive the microwave signal from the magnetron and to filter the microwave signal to obtain a feedback signal from the microwave signal, wherein the filter feeds the feedback signal back to the magnetron which is used to fix an oscillation frequency of the magnetron.
16. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 15, further comprising a coupler, wherein the filter receives the microwave signal through a coupler.
17. The microwave signal generator as claimed in claim 15, wherein the filter is a band-pass filter that includes a DR (Dielectric Resonator) filter.
