Abstract
This paper discusses the development of a monolithic GaAs anti-parallel pair of Schottky barrier diodes, and its integration into a G-band (183 GHz) subharmonically pumped mixer. The diodes’ IV characteristics are equivalent to those of the best whisker contacted diodes, and are well matched due to the design of the fabrication process. The performance of the prototype mixer is comparable to that of a similar mixer with whisker contacted diodes. This monolithic design is ideally suited for space applications at millimeter and submillimcter wavelengths.
