Abstract

A monolithically integrated frequency multiplier based on a planar antenna providing impedance matching has been realized and measured at 300 GHz. Each of the two circuits comprises a Schottky varactor, slot antenna, MIM-capacitor and microstrip bias feed. The theoretical design aspects, the technological approach and the RF performance are addressed.
