Abstract

Loading a two-dimensional grid with active devices offers a means of combining the power of solid-state oscillators in the microwave and millimeter-wave range. The grid structure allows a large number of negative resistance devices to be combined. In this approach, the combining is done in free space, and the active devices do not require an external locking signal. The loaded grid is a planar structure amenable to monolithic integration. Measurements on a 25-MESFET grid at 9.7 GHz show power-combining and frequency-locking without an external locking signal, with an ERP of 37 W. Experimental fa.r-field patterns agree with theoretical results obtained using reciprocity. Copyright .
