Paper Abstract

Frequency multiplier circuits based on planar GaAs Schottky diodes have advanced significantly in the last decade. Useful power in the >1 THz range has now been demonstrated from a complete solid-state chain. This paper will review some of the technologies that have led to this achievement along with a brief look at future challenges.
