A detailed review of the principles governing the performance of point-contact diodes is presented. The requirements necessary for these devices to be used as harmonic generators and mixers in the submillimetre and infrared region are emphasized, and some new developments concerning the physical mechanisms responsible for the operation of the diode are reported. Special attention is given to the importance of surfaces and interfaces in these devices.
