Class Information
Number: 257/106
Name: Active solid-state devices (e.g., transistors, solid-state diodes) > Tunneling pn junction (e.g., esaki diode) device > Reverse bias tunneling structure (e.g., "backward" diode, true zener diode)
Description: Subject matter wherein the tunnel junction is structured to permit quantum mechanical tunneling of carriers in a reverse bias mode, i.e., when the p-side of the junction is connected to a negative voltage source and the n-side of the junction is connected to a positive voltage source.
