Si/SiGe ITD layer

Si/SiGe quantum well based interband tunnelling diodes exhibiting high peak to valley current ratios (up to 5.6) have been realized using solid source molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) [1]. We report also the first room temperature demonstration of negative differential resistance in diodes incorporating self-assembled Ge quantum dots [2]. In that case, a detailed structural optimisation leads to peak to valley current ratios between 2 and 3 [3].
