Tunnel Diode Tips – Working and Detector application

Tunnel diode –┬ásemiconductor diode characterized by a small thickness of the “p-n junction”, a very high concentration of dopants on both sides (“p” and “n”-type doped semiconductors) and a negative dynamic resistance for a certain range of polarizing voltages. It was invented in 1957 by the Japanese physicist Leo Esaki (hence sometimes it can also … Continue reading Tunnel Diode Tips – Working and Detector application
