A 270 GHz-band image rejection SIS mixer is developed. This mixer employs planer type image rejection configuration and is integrated into a single-chip as in MMIC's at microwave frequency. In order to use sapphire substrate at 270 GHz-band, CPW transmission lines are selected to realize 50-70Ω characteristic impedances. The fabricated MMIC SIS mixer performs 12-24 dB image rejection ratio with 450-780 K noise temperature at 270 GHz.
