p-i-n diodes for the modulation of mm-wave frequencies

  • J. M. Muller
  • Published 1976 in IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices


A theoretical expression for a figure of merit Qswith respect to RF losses and switching time for p-i-n diodes is given. A fabrication technique is presented which is especially suited to obtain a large Qs. The static, dynamic, and RF data of the diodes and their performance in a 180-degree phase shift modulator at a frequency of 35 GHz and a bitrate of 256… (More)
