Paper Abstract

We survey a theoretical investigation of shot-noise in single and multiple barrier diodes. Several mechanisms responsible of the suppression of shot noise are reviewed together with the conditions for obtaining shot noise enhancement. The coherent versus sequential tunneling model for the double barrier resonant diode is discussed in the light of existing experiments.
