A whiskerless millimeter-wave mixer diode that yields performance comparable to that of the highest-quality whisker-contacted diodes is discussed. The diode uses an etched surface channel and planar air bridge to obtain greatly reduced parasitic capacitance. At 94 GHz, the room-temperature diode exhibited a conversion loss of 5.3 dB±0.5 dB and an equivalent input noise temperature of 518 K±50 K SSB (single sideband)
