Heterostructure Barrier Varactor Multipliers
Paper in proceedings, 2000

The Heterostructure Barrier Varactor (HBV) diode and its application in frequency multipliers is reviewed. Different material systems and HBV models are described. Multiplier performance versus diode parameters and some practical multiplier designs are discussed as well. The best result until now is an efficiency of 12% and an output power of 9 mW at an output frequency of 250 GHz.
