Gunn Effect

Gunn Effect: In 1963, Gunn discovered the transferred electron effect which now bears his name. This Gunn Effect is instrumental in the generation of microwave oscillations in bulk semicon­ductor materials. The effect was found by Gunn to be exhibited by gallium arsenide and indium phosphide, but cadmium telluride and indium arsenide have also subse­quently been […]

Tunnel Diode Equivalent Circuit

Tunnel Diode Equivalent Circuit: The Tunnel Diode Equivalent Circuit, when biased in the negative-resistance region, is shown in Figure 12-18. At all except the highest frequencies, the series resistance and inductance can be ignored. The resulting diode equivalent circuit is thus reduced to the parallel combination of the junction capacitance Cj and the negative resistance […]
