Abstract : The patent describes a frequency multiplier with a fixed multiplication factor comprising at least one p-n semiconductor junction diode and an electron beam for irradiating the p-portion of the diode. One form of the invention has diodes arranged in pairs, the input frequency modulating the beam to sweep it back and forth across the diodes once per input cycle. Another form has a mask across the face of a diode with undulations in the mask acting to vary the amount of current flow in the diode as the beam sweeps back and forth across the mask. A further form of the invention comprises sweeping the beam in a circle in one direction only either over a series of diodes or over a single diode which is covered with a mask.
