    Author : Joakim Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SBD; high-power microwave devices; Silicon Carbide; diode mixer; wide band gap devices; physical simulations; resistive mixer; microwave devices; MESFET; Schottky diode;

    Abstract : This work deals with silicon carbide (SiC) microwave devices. It treats two devices; the Schottky diode and the metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET). Different MESFET materials, fabrication processes, theoretical models for physical simulation, and device models are presented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microwave power device characterization

    Author : Kristoffer Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; statistical estimation; self-heating; Silicon Carbide; Gallium Nitride; mixer; thermal resistance; wide bandgap; microwave; error-correction; small-signalmodel;

    Abstract : The first part of the thesis covers work done on device characterizationmethods. A statistical method for estimating small-signal model parametersin FET-models was proposed. A maximum likelihood estimator wasderived and the new method was compared to a standard direct extractiontechnique. READ MORE

  3. 3. High Temperature Superconducting and Tunable Ferroelectric Microwave Devices

    Author : Erik F. Carlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : varactors; tunable microwave circuits; conformal mapping; cryogenic probe station; ferroelectrics; high temperature superconductors; microwave circuits; narrow-band filters; phase-shifter;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses some applications of High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) and ferroelectric materials in tunable microwave devices and circuits. The work is divided into three main areas: i) modeling of multilayered structures including ferroelectric layers, ii) realization and characterization of tunable coplanar waveguides (CPW), capacitors and resonators based on ferroelectrics, and iii) an investigation of microstrip HTS K-band filters.

  4. 4. Nonlinear Characterization of Wideband Microwave Devices and Dispersive Effects in GaN HEMTs

    Author : Sebastian Gustafsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; large-signal; dispersive effects; electron trapping; thermal coupling; HEMT; GaN; microwave; wideband;

    Abstract : Measurements play a key role in the development of microwave hardware as they allow engineers to test and verify the RF performance on a system, circuit, and component level. Since modern cellular standards employ complex modulation formats with wider signal bandwidths to cope with the growing demand of higher datarates, nonlinear characterization using wideband stimuli is becoming increasingly important.
