Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach to the design and the optimization of quasi-optical frequency multipliers. We have developed a specialized computer code, to simulate the non-linear device, the planar antenna and the embedding layered structure as a whole. The antenna parameters are deduced from full-wave analysis, based on the Method of the Moments, while the solution of the non-linear circuit is found by the Harmonic Balance Method. This analysis algorithm is integrated into an optimization routine, which adjusts the antenna geometry and the layered structure, in order to maximize the overall conversion efficiency of the multiplier.
