We present an experimental study of the nonlinearity of modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes at cryogenic temperatures. At 120 K, the amplitudeto-phase (AM-to-PM) conversion nonlinearity is reduced by up to 10 dB, resulting in nearly 40 dB AM

July 23, 2014
Nathan D. Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian J. Long, Thomas F. Lam, James C. Booth, David R. Novotny, James A. Liddle, Pavel Kabos
The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. To
