Abstract
While much effort has been expended at determining the highest frequency of operation of quantum well diodes (QWD), little attention has been placed on determining the inherent maximum power available from these devices. In this paper, we report experimental results of several QWD and quantum well injection transit time (QWITT) diodes which we believe operate at their maximum output power. Simple quasi-static calculations will also be given to support this claim. From these results, extension to the higher frequency domain is possible by using available device models.
