Abstract
A quasi-optical diode-grid frequency tripler array was analyzed by the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method in this paper. A nonlinear algorithm was successfully developed in order to deal with the nonlinear characteristic of a varactor. The results obtained for a test case showed excellent agreement between the FDTD and a direct mathematical method. The detailed analysis of a frequency tripler array employing back-to-back AlGaAs/GaAs heterojunction varactor was given.
