The hysteresis (extrinsic) and current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the multiwell, vertically integrated, resonant-tunneling diode are analyzed. Our analysis shows that hysteresis in the vertically integrated diode I-V can result from interchanging the order in which the devices switch, depending if the bias is increasing or decreasing. Experimental results are presented that support this analysis.
