ABSTRACT
Measures the room-temperature, broad-band, terahertz frequency response of an In[sub 0.47]Ga[sub 0.47]As/AlAs resonant tunneling diode (RTD). Use of tungsten probe tip as a whisker antenna in determining the rectified response; Normalization of the rectified response in the resonant-tunneling regime; Estimation of the RTD relaxation times.
