  1. A D-band (110‒170 GHz) SiC substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) is characterized on-wafer by two different vector network analyzers (VNAs): a 220-GHz single-sweep VNA and an 110-GHz VNA with WR8 (90‒140 GHz) and WR5 (140‒220 GHz) frequency extenders. To facilitate probing, the SIW input and output are transitioned to grounded coplanar waveguides (GCPWs). Two-tier calibration is used to de-embed the SIWGCPW transitions as well as to extract the intrinsic SIW characteristics. In general, the two VNAs are in agreement and both result in an ultra-low insertion loss of approximately 0.2 dB/mm for the same SIW, despite stitching errors at band edges.

  3. In this paper, we demonstrate a novel approach utilizing tunnel junction (TJ) to realize GaN-based distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes (LDs). Thanks to the use of the TJ the top metal contact is moved to the side of the ridge and the DFB grating is placed directly on top of the ridge. The high refractive index contrast between air and GaN, together with the high overlap of optical mode with the grating, provides a high coupling coefficient. The demonstrated DFB LD operates at λ=450.15 nm with a side mode suppression ratio higher than 35dB. The results are compared to a standard Fabry-Perot LD.
