Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    A high-power Schottky diode frequency multiplier chain at 360 GHz, with a 3 dB bandwidth above 20 GHz is presented. The cascaded frequency doublers show peak efficiencies of 35% and 23% at 180 and 354 GHz, respectively. While the 180 GHz doubler generates a maximum power of 69 mW at 300 mW input, the second stage doubler delivers 12 mW output at 360 GHz. Both doublers consist of low parasitic GaAs Schottky diode circuits optimized to handle high input powers, and neither exhibit saturation at the highest applied power.
