In the course of pursuing several microwave solidstate subjects at Marquette University, the author became interested in the idea of the propagation of electromagnetic energy at microwave frequencies through materials such as ferrites which have relative permeabilities which can be far different from that of free-space. A preliminary investigation was accomplished for the purpose of finding a new device or a aplication based on induced changes in the ferrite permeability, and the accelerometer described in this thesis eventually resulted. The scope of this thesis was very limited: to show that a second order effect -- such as the magnetostriction effect on ferrite permeability -- often totally ignored, may be employed to create an operating device with practical applications. Results, both theoretical and empirical, are presented which indicate successful operation and at least justify further investigation.
