Abstract

The design and RF characteristics of planar dipole antennas facilitated with coplanar waveguide (CPW) structure on semi-insulated GaAs are performed and confirmed to work in super high frequency (SHF) range. As expected, the fundamental resonant frequency shifts to higher frequency when the length of antenna decreases. Interestingly, the resonant frequencies of antenna are almost unchanged with the variation of antenna width and metal thickness. It is shown experimentally that return loss down to −54 dB with a metal thickness of 50 nm is obtainable. Preliminary investigation on design, fabrication, and DC and RF characteristics of the integrated device (planar dipole antenna + Schottky diode) on AlGaAs/GaAs HEMT structure is presented. From the preliminary direct irradiation experiments using the integrated device, the Schottky diode is not turned on due to weak reception of RF signal by dipole antenna. Further extensive considerations on the polarization of irradiation etc. need to be carried out in order to improve the signal reception. These preliminary results provide a new breakthrough for on-chip electronic device application in nanosystems.
