Paper Abstract

A 130 GHz GaAs Schottky-barrier diode oscillator operated in the MITATT mode is described. Preliminary results show that the noise performance of a MITATT source is indeed lower than that of an IMPATT source. With further improvement, MITATT diode oscil-lators can be useful for medium power, low noise applications above 100 GHz.
