passive frequency doubler (HMC-XDB112) for low input signal

hi,

 

an harmonic radar using zero bias diodes ad frequency doubler as in this article:

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpls/abs_all.jsp?arnumber=1353476

shows a convertion efficiency quite low (0.8% at a 30 W/m2)

 

do you think replacing diodes with MMIC passive frequency doubler (as HMC-XDB112) can improve performance of tag of an harmonic radar? (note that input power can be very smaller respect datasheet specs)

 

br,

 

Maurice
