A research program was conducted in which the effects of heated carriers in semiconductors were investigated and employed the design and development of novel millimeterwave devices. The devices included a video detector, heterodyne mixer, amplitude modulator, and harmonic generator, designed for operation in the 50 to 90 Gcs range. The experimental models were designed and constructed for operation at room temperature with the exception of the InSb mixer for which significantly improved performance was achieved by cooling to liquid nitrogen temperature. The theoretical and experimental investigations of the thermoelectric effect of hot carriers in a semiconductor are described. The analysis, design, and development of the experimental hot-carrier devices are presented. Author
