Abstract:

Active grids dramatically increase the power-handling ability of solid-state devices by quasi-optical power combining. We report progress in three areas - oscillator grids, mixer grids, and amplifier grids. Several different grids with up to 100 devices have been demonstrated and accurate circuit models have been developed. This work should make high-power millimeter-wave monolithic circuits for radars and communications systems possible.
