11% efficiency 100 GHz InP-based heterostructure barrier varactor quintupler
Journal article, 2005

A record conversion efficiency of 11.4% at 100 GHz using a heterostructure barrier varactor (HBV) quintupler is demonstrated. The quintupler is based on a microstrip circuit mounted in a full-height crossed-waveguide block. The nonlinear element consists of a planar HBV diode fabricated in InGaAs=InAlAs=AlAs epitaxial layers on an InP substrate.
