Improved Diode Geometry for Planar Heterostructure Barrier Varactors
Paper i proceeding, 1999
We report state-of-the-art performance of tripler efficiency and output power for a new design of AlGaAs-based heterostructure barrier varactor diodes. The new diodes were designed for reduced thermal resistance and series resistance. An efficiency of 4.8% and a maximum output power of 4 mW was achieved at an output frequency of 246 GHz.
