Ph.D. Dissertation Title: Large-Signal Analysis of Nonlinear Microwave Devices
The research concerned the development of a technique for the analysis of nonlinear systems with large, multi-frequency inputs. The analysis is applicable to systems whose input-output characteristics can be described by a generalized power series with complex coefficients and time-delays. The technique was applied to the large-signal, multi-frequency analysis of mixers and parametric amplifiers and was verified experimentally with a mixer and with a microwave parametric amplifier.
