In an electron inversion layer on a degenerate p-type InAs substrate, a resonance effect is observed in tunneling from the two-dimensional electron gas into the continuum of valence states. The effect is confirmed by additional magnetotunneling measurements.

    We examine the dynamical properties of resonant tunneling through single InAs quantum dots by measuring the shot noise of the current. We observe an approximately linear voltage dependence of both the shot noise, characterized by the Fano factor, and the tunneling current itself. We ascribe this...

    The mechanism of resonant interband tunneling in polytype heterostructures of GaSb/AlSb/InAs gives excellent peak-to-valley current ratios due to the band-gap blocking of the nonresonant current components.
