Millimeter Wave Microstrip Mixer Based on Graphene
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 118, 57-69, 2011
Abstract
In this work, a millimeter wave microstrip frequency-mixer design based on graphene is presented. The desired frequency mixing behavior is obtained using a nonlinear component consisting in a microstrip line gap covered by a graphene layer. The circuit includes microstrip filters that have been designed to obtain a high isolation between the input and output ports. The nonlinear behavior of the frequency mixer has been experimentally evaluated in the 38.6-40 GHz input signal frequency range, for different values of the input power and local oscillator power.
