Abstract

A new method of design of mm-wave Gunn oscillators has been developed and tested. The method utilises the fact that high frequency GaAs Gunn diodes work in the harmonic mode for transmission whilst allowing tuning at the fundamental. Hardware for wide frequency coverage (30 GHz centred at about 85 GHz) is described with experimental results.
