Resonant Tunneling Diodes Tool Information

Logo for Resonant Tunneling Diodes Tool Information
Heterostructure devices have thin layers of alternating materials. Some layers act as barriers to electron flow, but if the layers are thin enough, electrons can "tunnel" through them. If two or more barriers are placed closely together, electrons can reflect between the barriers and resonate at particular energies, allowing complete transmission through the barriers, as if they were not there! This gives rise to negative differential resistance--current that goes down as voltage goes up--an...
