Paper Abstract

The tunneling phenomenon assumes significant role in devices, which are put to use in information processing, data storage and transmission, digital functioning etc. The requirements call for low dimensions, low weight, low power consumption, high frequency etc. Template synthesis is an elegant approach for synthesizing nano/micro sized resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs). Using track-etch membranes as templates, we report here on the nano/micro fabrication of RTDs using binary systems like Cu-Se, Zn-Se etc and present their I-V characteristics, besides the effect of temperature and size variation of the structures.
