Design and Performance of a 2.7 THz Waveguide TriplerThe design and performance of a 0.9 THz to 2.7 THz waveguide tripler are presented. An unusual split block configuration with parallel input and output waveguides accommodates a monolithic membrane diode (MoMeD) circuit. Submicron planar GaAs Schottky diodes in single and antiparallel pairs are implemented with matching filters on a 3-micrometer thick suspended substrate as part of the MoMeD structure. The filters are a combination of short hammerheads and high-low impedance elements. Only a few circuit variations have been measured to date. The best current performance shows an output power of 0.1 microW and an efficiency of 0.002% at the band center frequency of 2.55 THz.
