Title:
Silicon Monolithic Millimetre-Wave Integrated Circuits 
Abstract:
Using silicon as the substrate material, silicon monolithic millimetre-wave integrated circuit (SIMMWIC) oscillators and receivers are successfully realised. For the coplanar oscillators, a slot is used as the resonant structure in which a monolithically integrated IMPATT diode, selectively grown by silicon molecular beam epitaxy (Si-MBE), acts as the negative resistance device. Pulsed and CW operation of the planar oscillators is achieved in the 90 GHz region. The output power is radiated direc...    »
