Definition of Injection Locking - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a complete definition for what injection locking is?
I have seen this term used for oscillators and power amplifiers mostly, but I am not 100% sure what it is.
I have a feeling that it is a description of applying a signal to a circuit (mainly an oscillator) to force it to oscillate at the applied frequency rather than the 'free-running' frequency.
