A single-pulse high power microwave detector was described in this paper, which was developed based on hot carriers effect in P-type semiconductors for measuring the power of high power microwave. The detector consists of P-type silicon as sensor unit and standard wave guide and is characterized by its capability of undertaking much higher power of microwave (about 6 orders higher than ordinary crystal detectors), fast response (response time is less than 1.7 ns), good linearity and large amplitude of output pulse, and can offer 3.0 GHz to 20 GHz performance with various waveguide. Also included in this paper are the calibration procedure of the detectors and results. The detector can be proved to be an efficient technical approach to solve the problems in measurements of high power microwaves.
