Topics in Millimeter Wave Technology is a compendium of papers dealing with plasma waves, TUNNETT diodes, and solid-state devices. One paper describes the application of the TUNNET diode, a semiconductor with a coherent signal source of over 100 GHz to 1000 GHz. The paper notes the possibility of achieving more than 1000 GHz through sophisticated device fabrication technology. Another paper discusses the use of computer-aided testing of superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) junction whose mixing properties are effected by the ski-sloped shape of the current-voltage curve. Such testing methods are useful at fixed or variable temperatures from 15 K to 300 K. One paper reviews the collective Thomson scattering theory, including the application of the multichannel far-infrared scattering system in the basic tokamak plasma physics. Another paper discusses the static induction transistor for very high frequency operation as the millimeter to submillimeter wave region is the ideal static induction transistor in ballistic devices. This review material can be helpful for nuclear scientists, nuclear engineers, students of physics, and researchers involved in plasma physics and semiconductor technology.
