Paper Abstract

A quasi-optical power combiner was designed to couple millimeter wave radiation from a number of IMPATT diodes to produce a single power source. Phase coupling at 35 GHz has been accomplished and rf power exceeded the sum of the individual diode outputs. Millimeter waves of high spectral purity, less than 50 kHz bandwidth, were produced. Although problems of coupling loop impedance matching have not been fully solved, the results of this experiment should encourage the production of large arrays of millimeter wave diodes in monolithic integrated circuits.
