Abstract
There has been increased interest in the study of resonant tunneling devices as the nonlinear characteristics of these devices can be used for frequency conversion applications such as multipliers and mixers. In addition, their ability to exhibit negative differential resistance (NDR) regions leads to their potential use as gain elements and presents new opportunities for circuit design. This paper will address the pros and cons of using such a potential gain element for frequency conversion applications.
