The Schottkty diodes will produce higher levesls of IM products with lower level signals.

That is to say Schottky is nice for fast and robust but bad for IMD. That is why some people use multiple Schottky diodes in series. (Of course, multiple epitaxial diodes in series is even better._

Hi Joanne.
Sorry for being ignorant and / or not having the american language as an mother tongue.
Do you mean that the Schottky diodes will produce lower (less) IM-levels than the epitaxial diodes at the same signal input level
or do you mean that
the Schottky diodes will produce IM already at an lower signal input level?
Just so everyone get your statement the same way.
