We report the design and successful operation of an superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) mixer operating near the superconducting gap of niobium. A key feature of this design is the employment of a unilateral finline taper to transform the waveguide modes to microstrip signals. This transition is easy to design since it can be rigorously modeled, and also easy to fabricate being a single-layer structure. We will show that unilateral finline mixers have important advantages at THz frequencies since they exhibit wideband operation at both radio frequency (RF) and intermediate frequency (IF), allow elegant on-chip integration of the mixer circuits and result in an extremely simple mixer block that does not require a backshort or any mechanical tuners. The mixer we describe below is fed by a multiple flare-angle smooth-walled horn which exhibits beam pattern characteristic comparable to the conventional corrugated horn and yet is much easier to fabricate.
