Research may lead to the production of more efficient optoelectronic devices

Publicado em 20 abril 2021
A diode is a widely used electronic device that acts as a one-way switch for electric current. A well-known example is the LED (Light Emitting Diode), but there is a special class of diode designed to take advantage of a phenomenon called “quantum tunneling”. Called Resonant Tunnel Diodes (RTDs), these devices are one of the fastest semiconductor devices used in countless practical applications such as terahertz band radio frequency oscillators, wave emitters, wave detectors, and [...]
