Paper Abstract

The physics, the theory and the engineering formulas of 1/f noise in ErAs-based all-epitaxial Schottky diodes are presented in a way related to the general quanum 1/f noise formulas developed by the author and van der Ziel ealier for pn junctions, but with inclusion of the image force contribution of an electron at the metal-semiconductor interface. On this base the phase noise introduced by mixers constructed with the ErAs Schottky diodes was also studied and can now be calculated analytically with the Quantum 1/f effect formulas.
