Abstract

A new AlInAs/GaInAs superlatticed negative-differential-resistance switch (SNDRS) is fabricated successfully and demonstrated. A 5-period AlInAs/GaInAs superlattice is used to serve the resonant tunneling route and the confinement barrier for minority carriers. Experimentally, an interesting three-Terminal-controlled N-shaped multiple negative-differential-resistance (MNDR) phenomenon and transistor action are,obtained for the studied SNDRS device in the saturation and forward active mode at room temperature, respectively. It is believed that the N-shaped MNDR results mainly from resonant tunneling within the 5-period AlInAs/GaInAs superlattice.
