Abstract:

The short-pulse RF burnout properties of the commercially available crystal diode mixers in the 4-mm band were examined by use of stable, 1-ns, 70-GHz pulses of controlled amplitude. The examination included the four basic types of 40mm band diodes silicon, germanium, and gallium arsenide point contacts, and an experimental Schottky barrier. Several 1N53s, silicon point contacts designed to operate at 8.6 mm, were included for comparison. Author
