A subharmonic graphene FET mixer
Journal article, 2012

We demonstrate a subharmonic resistive graphene FET (G-FET) mixer utilizing the symmetrical channel resistance vs. gate voltage characteristic. A down-conversion loss of 24 dB is obtained with fRF=2 GHz, fLO=1.01 GHz and fIF=20 MHz in a 50 Ω impedance system. Unlike the conventional subharmonic resistive FET mixers, this type of mixer operates with only one transistor and does not need any balun at the LO port which makes it more compact.
