Summary, in English

Co-integration of an InGaAs MOSFET and an RTD is performed to realize a wavelet generator. The large transconductance of the MOSFET (1.9 mS/mu m) is used to switch the current in an oscillator circuit and coherent wavelets down to 41 ps are generated in the frequency domain of 50 to 100 GHz. The lowest power consumption measured is 1.9 pJ/pulse. It is found that the supply bias can be used to modulate the center frequency of the wavelets.
