hi All,
i'm interesting for diodes that are working at very high frequencies (over 50GHz)
any suggestion is welcome.

Hi,
I suggest you to have a look at PDB (Planar dopped Barrier) diode. We use it for the power measurement of RF signal at 50 GHZ.
See Application Note of Agilent.

At above 50 GHz, most diodes are marketed in chip form. If you need a really good Schottky diode , please contact Spacek Labs. Inc. "www.spaceklabs.com" for the diodes in "picopill" enclosures, 0.5 mm dia. x 0.4 mm long, usable up to >110 GHz.

Step recovery diodes are also an option for the >10GHz application.
