A study was made of the circuit requirements for broadband diode doublers and triplers using an analytical approach based on the work of Penfield and Rafuse. Circuit requirements for narrow band and broadband multipliers were established from the theory and a logical design procedure was worked out. Corroborative experimental data are provided from results obtained for a 1 to 2 Gc doubler and a 2 to 6 Gc tripler which operate efficiently, on a fixed tuned basis, over bandwidths of at least 4. Application of these results to the design of multipliers for an X-Band Source is indicated. A discussion is presented of the problems associated with the construction of an operable driver oscillator using parallel transistors. Preliminary results of multiplier diodes are mentioned. Author
