Generalized small signal impedance for microwave BARITT diodes Academic Article uri icon


  • A general treatment is outlined and equations are developed for the small signal impedance of microwave reach-through BARITT diodes. The results are expressed in terms of “injection phase delay,” ϕi and “drift transit,” θd angles. It is shown that substantial improvements in the negative resistance and hence efficiency of such oscillators can be expected as ϕi is allowed to increase, but not to exceed π/2.
