HBV MMIC frequency tripler and quintupler for high power THz applications
Paper in proceedings, 2011

We present the development status of two different HBV frequency multipliers, with x3 and x5 multiplication for a 282 GHz and 470 GHz output respectively. The multipliers are designed for high power operation and fabricated in an InP monolithic process. Preliminary measurements of the x3 multiplier demonstrate 10 % conversion efficiency at 296 GHz.
