Spectral Domain Simulation of SIS Frequency Multiplication
Paper in proceedings, 2017

In this paper, we compare simulations to experimental results for a new SIS frequency multiplier. To simulate these devices, we developed software based on spectral-domain analysis, which is ideal for simulating higher-order harmonics such as those present in a multiplier. In addition, we included the embedding circuit and interpolated the experimental I-V curve to allow the simulation to capture the experimental system as closely as possible. For the experimental data, results were taken from a new SIS frequency multiplier that has recently been developed at the Chalmers University of Technology. Previously, these experimental results were compared to simulations based on Tucker theory. Here, we compare these results to spectral-domain simulations. Qualitatively, the inclusion of embedding impedances and the use of spectral-domain analysis improves the agreement between simulation and experiment. The software can now be used to design multipliers with high output power and high conversion efficiency
