Fourth-Harmonic Schottky Diode Mixer Development at Sub-Millimeter Frequencies


This paper presents the design, fabrication and measurements of a fourth-harmonic Schottky diode mixer working at sub-millimeter frequencies, in particular at an RF frequency of 440 GHz. Measured DSB noise temperature of 7900 K and conversion loss of 14 dB have been obtained. This configuration offers an alternative solution which simplifies the LO signal… (More)
