Abstract : A microwave transistor oscillator/doubler comprising an Field-Effect Transistor with Terminals G, D and S in combination with a coupling network connected to the terminals G, D and S and composed of microstrip lines with lengths equal to a quarter wavelength at the second harmonic of a fundamental frequency. The doubler further comprises a bias circuit for supplying appropriate voltages to the FET terminals, and an impedance coupler for coupling from the FET D-S terminals to a waveguide load. The coupling network optimizes feedback at the second harmonic between the D-S and G-S ports of the FET to prevent destructive harmonic feedback interaction with the desired signal while providing optimum conditions for feedback at the fundamental frequency. The bias circuit is connected to the coupling network and includes a second network of transmission line elements of lengths equal to a quarter wavelength at the fundamental in order to prevent dissipation of the fundamental frequency therein.
