Abstract

This paper presents the design, fabrication and characterization of a GaAs membrane-supported 60 GHz receiver based on the monolithic integration of a double folded slot antenna with a Schottky diode. The design is based on intensive electromagnetic simulations and layout optimization of the antenna structure. The antenna integrated with the Schottky diode are supported on a 2.2 ìm thick semi-insulating membrane fabricated using GaAs micromachining. The experimental results demonstrate a isotropic voltage sensitivity of 20.000 mV/mW at 61 GHz operating frequency.
