Abstract:

Technical problems arising in the application of the new mesa etching process for the Impatt diodes are summarized. Although this process worked satisfactorily for large diameter mesas, it has proven completely unsuitable for the small mesas required by the devices for this program. Changes devised in this process are described. The new oscillator design initiated at the beginning of the quarter has been completed except for tuning varactor feedthrough details. Electrical data illustrating the improved performance of this design over past engineering samples is presented.
