Abstract:

A theoretical scheme is presented for achieving broadband, nondegenerate traveling wave parametric amplification. In this scheme the parasitic elements of the parametric diode lead inductance and case capacitance are utilized in conjunction with the static junction capacitance to achieve broadband synchronism and gain among the signal, idle, and pump waves. The application of this theoretical design technique to the program frequencies 50-500 mcs is analyzed. Operation at various other frequency bands 400-1600 mcs, 2300-3500 mcs is also discussed. In each case, calculations predict high over-all gain over the given signal band. At the program frequencies the required diode characteristics are beyond the present limits of the diode fabrication art. As a result of these investigations it was concluded that an experimental program to construct a nondegenerate traveling wave diode parametric upconverter was not advisable. Author
