A single barrier varactor quintupler at 170 GHz
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1995
InGaAs-InAlAs single-barrier varactor (SBV) diodes are tested as frequency quintuplers. The diodes were tested in a crossed-waveguide structure and provided output frequencies between 148 and 187 GHz. The highest observed flange-to-flange efficiency was 0.78% at an output frequency of 172 GHz. This is nearly four times greater than the best quintupler efficiency obtained for previous SBV varactors made from the GaAs-AlGaAs materials system.
