Paper Abstract

Three models are presented for resonant tunneling diodes (RTD). These models range in complexity from a full quantum kinetic equation based on the Crystal Wigner function approach to a simple phenomenological model based on the drift-diffusion equation. Of these three, the Crystal Wigner function has the capability of properly accounting for complex band structure transport issues within the quantum well region.
