The authors report the fabrication and millimeter-wave performance of a novel class of monolithic metal-semiconductor heterostructure devices, the barrier-intrinsic-n/sup +/ (BIN) diode-grid frequency multipliers, which are fabricated on III-V compound semiconductors. They also report the measurement of the DC and low-frequency electrical properties of the multiplier. A novel analytical model that accurately describes the structure is presented. Based on the theoretical and experimental studies presented here, the authors predict watt-level CW (continuous wave) output power at 90-180 GHz from a monolithic diode-grid multiplier design using the GaAs BIN concept.<>
