A 150-GHz Schottky diode subharmonic receiver based on a coplanar-waveguide-fed double-folded-slot (DFS) antenna is presented in this paper. The DFS antenna is placed on an extended hemispherical high-resistivity silicon substrate lens to achieve a high directivity and a high coupling to a Gaussian beam efficiency. The uniplanar receiver results in a 12±0.5-dB measured double-sideband conversion loss at 144-152 GHz for a 8-10 mW local-oscillator power at 77 GHz, and has a wide-hand ⩽13-dB conversion loss over 30 GHz of bandwidth (140-170 GHz). The measured conversion loss includes silicon lens absorption and reflection losses, as well as IF mismatch losses. The applications are in new small aperture (7.5-cm lenses) collision-avoidance radars at 150 GHz
