Prospective design frequency multipliers submillimeter wavelengths


E.V. Belkova – Bachelor, Student, Bauman Moscow State Technical University E-mail: N.V. Fedorkova – Ph. D. (Eng.), Associate Professor, Department «Technologies of Instrumental Engineering», Bauman Moscow State Technical University E-mail:

The modern design of varactor frequency multipliers submillimeter wavelengths with Schottky diodes, including balanced doublers and tripler. Determine their element base and limit the power output. Identified ways to improve the parameters of the diode with a Schottky barrier and ways to increase the power output of the multipliers. It is shown that the method of calculating microwave designs may be used to calculate the submillimetre devices. The estimation of the prospects of the design frequency multipliers submillimeter range.
