Abstract:
Considerable success has recently been gained in the design and production of high powered frequency triplers incorporating Schottky varactor diodes. The design approach that was used for this goal has now been turned to the design of fixed tuned, broadband frequency triplers specifically intended for use in SIS receivers. The tripler reported here makes use of a Heterostructure Barrier Varactor or HBV. A waveguide circuit has been designed that provides more than 50µW of output power for an input power of 10mW over a frequency range of 250 - 300GHz completely fixed tuned and without the need for bias. Further modification of the waveguide circuit should extend the useful fixed tuned bandwidth to greater that 100GHz centred at 300GHz.
