Paper Abstract

In this paper is given an overview of hot-electron superconducting mixers for submillimeter wave applications with emphasis on results obtained in Europe. The two competing types of mixers, the phonon cooled and the diffusion cooled, are described. A calculation scheme for the mixer conversion properties is presented based on data extracted from pumped and unpumped IV-characteristics. The generation of image frequency terms is discussed. Finally some state of the art results are presented.
