An Integrated 200-GHz Graphene FET Based Receiver
Paper in proceedings, 2018

A receiver composed by a graphene FET 200-GHz mixer and a 1-GHz intermediate frequency amplifier integrated on a silicon substrate was modelled, fabricated and characterized. This is the first demonstration of a millimeter wave integrated receiver based on graphene FETs. The receiver conversion loss is measured to be 25 dB across the 185-205-GHz band with 16 dBm of local oscillator pump power, which is in good agreement with the circuit simulations. The simulations show that the receiver conversion loss can be significantly reduced to 16 dB by reducing the contact resistance and by realizing a higher charge carrier mobility in the mixer transistor.
