We investigate an axially symmetrical Fabry-Perot oscillator with active devices inserted in a dielectric substrate for power combining of many more devices in the microwave and millimeter wave frequency range. Empirically in this oscillator, efficient power combining can be done when it oscillates approximately at the frequency which corresponds to the wavelength equal to twice the spacing between the devices. The wavelength in the dielectric is shorter than in free space, so we tried to insert the devices in the dielectric substrate in order to increase the number of devices. By measuring the oscillation frequency of the oscillator with sixteen devices at X-band, we confirmed that the spacing between devices was about a half wavelength in the dielectric. We achieved almost perfect power combining of sixteen devices
