Quantum Well and Quantum Barrier Diodes for Generating Sub-Millimeter Wave Power

Authors:
Hans Grönqvist, Erik Kollberg, Anders Rydberg
Abstract:
Quantum well diodes have been used for generating power at millimeter and submillimeter waves, both in negative resistance oscillators and in multipliers. In this paper, we will first discuss the power versus frequency and the maximum frequency of oscillation of "ordinary" quantum well oscillators. Possible methods of improving the power output and the maximum frequency of oscillation will be suggested. Quantum well diode multipliers will also be discussed. Realizing the importance of the non-linear capacitance for the quantum well diode multiplier efficiency we have investigated a quantum barrier diode in multiplier applications.
