Paper Abstract

Millimeter wave radio development has been limited by the very high cost of millimeter wave components. Millimeter wave receivers almost exclusively use the superheterodyne approach and coherent detection. An alternate approach with low cost potential would utilize direct incoherent thermal detection of millimeter wave energy. Some of the problems and prospects of such an optoelectronic receiver are explored in this paper.
