High quality millimetre wavelength GaAs Schottky barrier diodes of various doping levels were measured over the temperature range 12°-300°K. The temperature dependence of various diode parameters agreed with existing theory. Factors relevant to obtaining optimum low noise performance from a cryogenic mixer utilizing these diodes are discussed. Finally… CONTINUE READING
