Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes the recent state-of-the-art results in silicon IMIPATT sources beyond 100 GHz. A bridge type double-quartz-standoff diode package has been developed and successfully used for frequency up to 255 GHz. Power combining techniques have been demonstrated to incorporate several diodes in a circuit that combines the power efficiently at 140 GHz and 217 GHz. Finally, a phase-locked source has been developed to achieve frequency stabilization at 217 GHz.
