Abstract:
The accurate design and successful implementation of very high frequency nonlinear circuits requires both a detailed understanding of the physical operation of the active devices and of how these nonlinear devices interact with the linear embedding circuit. This work addresses the specific task of establishing a robust simulation tool that can be used to for the future design of GaAs Schottky diode multipliers at terahertz (~ 0.3-10.0 THz) frequencies. This paper will present an entirely new algorithm for the optimization of these combined multiplier elements. In this novel approach, the available second-harmonic power of the diode is first optimized over all allowable diode excitation voltages and harmonics.
