The operation of the fluid-jet amplifier is described briefly. A performance criterion is developed for the amplifiers, and design techniques are presented which constrain the amplifier to exhibit the decision function. The techniques involve the superposition of a bias on the amplifier which alters its switching characteristics. In addition, a stability criterion for amplifier operation is developed and its uses are suggested. Some effects of internal geometry variations are also discussed.
