Title:Theory of electron transport processes in tunnel diodes
Author(s):Faiman, Michael

Subject(s):electron transport
tunnel diodes
Fermi-Dirac distributions
non-equilibrium tunneling integrals
Abstract:A unified theory of conduction processes in tunnel diodes is presented. The use of Fermi-Dirac distributions in non-equilibrium tunneling integrals is justified. The direct tunneling mechanism is examined from two points of view and is shown to be described about equally well by either. In subsequent sections, indirect tunnellng and the phenomena of excess and thermal currents are treated.
