Abstract:

The use of silicon and ultra-thick photoresist micromachining for the fabrication of terahertz frequency klystrons is discussed and a Monte Carlo based model of the device physics is presented. The model is shown to be an accurate representation of the electron flow in the device and it is demonstrated how it can be used as a design tool to optimise the geometry and operating conditions. An estimate of the power levels to be expected by the proposed devices is given.
