dc.description.abstract We report on the design of a fix-tuned split-block waveguide balanced frequency tripler working nominally at 900GHz. It uses a GaAs Schottky planar diode pair in a balanced configuration. The circuit will be fabricated with JPL membrane technology in order to minimize dielectric loading. The multiplier is bias-less to dramatically ease the mounting and the operating procedure. At room temperature, the expected output power is 50- 130 µW in the band 800-970 GHz when the tripler is pumped with 4mW. By modifying the waveguide input and output matching circuit, the multiplier can be tuned to operate at lower frequencies. en
