I have been using the diodes as an RF detector for 2.4GHz signals. After few tests the diodes keep breaking down and I have to change the diodes. Reverse Voltage ( Vr) is below the max ratings for both of them. Circuit used for this is in the document "RF and microwave power detection with
Schottky diodes" as attached.

Can you please help me understand why this is happening and any suggestions on how I can stop this from happening?

Thank you
