D-band Vector Network Analyzer

Authors:
James Steimel, Jr., Jack East
Abstract:
This paper will describe the design, calibration, and performance of a 2 port vector network analyzer designed to operate between 140-160 GHz. Single frequency measurements can be made over this entire band. Signal level problems require broadband measurements is two ranges between 140 and 150 GHz and between 150 and 160 GHz. An external computer is used for the purpose of calculating the calibration coefficients of the network analyzer. The system can be calibrated to a systematic error of 1.5 dB with the limitations in the accuracy of the calibration due to loss in the system, limitations on the calibration standards, and reflections in the system. Problems in the calibration and software computer control will be described and several representative one port measurements results between 140 and 150 GHz will be presented.
