Abstract:

Individual semiconductor devices can not output the power required for many future millimeter-wave systems. During this three year contract we have investigated an innovative way of coherently combining the outputs of a large number of semiconductor devices as a means of generating high power millimeter- wave signals. The combiner consists of a 2-D array of free running oscillators integrated into radiating antennas. Inter-element coupling in the array acts to lock all the elements together in-phase. Arrays of Gunn diodes and MESFETs have been built and will be described.
