Summary, in English

We report comprehensive microwave measurements on a T-branch switch; a GaInAs/InP electron waveguide based structure. The study includes a small signal model of the device where limitations of high frequency operation are discussed. An example of large signal operation where the nonlinearity of the device is exploited by operating the T-branch switch as a frequency multiplier is demonstrated.
