The use of integrated, tunnel diode, amplifier-antenna elements to enhance the scattering aperture of normally passive, scattering surfaces was investigated. The major emphasis in this study was placed on the refinement and development of lightweight, planar integrated, amplifier-antenna elements that were capable of high gain, large bandwidth and high saturation power levels. Intensive analytical and experimental investigations were also performed on the use of these elements in various scattering arrays and in beam forming, corner reflector enhancement, and modulation technique applications. Results indicate that such elements can satisfactorily enhance the scattering aperture of normally passive, antenna surfaces and that they can also be used practically in beam forming, corner reflector enhancement and linear modulation applications.
