Paper Abstract

The efficiency of a frequency multiplier depends on the varactor parameters and the embedding impedances seen by the diode at fundamental and harmonic frequencies. In this study mm-wave doublers and other multipliers were simulated by computer to find optimum embedding impedances for a given diode. A scaled model was constructed in order to search for optimum impedances for broadband multipliers in practice.
