Abstract
Integration of III-V semiconductors on Si substrates allows for the realization of high-performance, low power III-V electronics on the Si-platform. In this work, we demonstrate the implementation of single balanced down-conversion mixer circuits, fabricated using vertically aligned InAs nanowire devices on Si. A thin, highly doped InAs buffer layer has been introduced to reduce the access resistance and serve as a bottom electrode. Low-frequency voltage conversion gain is measured up to 7 dB for a supply voltage of 1.5V. Operation of these mixers extends into the GHz regime with a [Formula: see text] cut-off frequency of 2 GHz, limited by the optical lithography system used. The circuit dc power consumption is measured at 3.9 mW.
