Forward bias Reverse bias This is called a backward di direction (due to tunneling), forward bias. ode because it. conducts freely in the reverse but. the current remains small for low voltage 133 \J’ Prob. 10.2 Explain what determines the peak tunneling voltage V; of a tunnel diode. For the given tunnel diode, (a) calculate the minimum forward bias at which tunneling through E, occurs. (b) Calculate the maximum fomard bias for tunneling via E.. (c) Sketch the I-V curve fiyr this diode. Er 7/7/7/7/7/ ’ ‘ The sizes of Evp —— E; and EF— Em determine the voltage required to align the most filled states opposite empty states. (a) Tunneling through the level begins when En, - EFF = E, i.e., at a forward bias of 0.3 V. (b) Tunneling through the level ends when Em. -— Evp = E, i.e., when Er" - EFF = V = 0.3 + 0.1+ 0.1 = 0.5 V. (c) Band-to-band tunneling is maximum when En. - 15;, = 0.1 V and is essentially zero when En, - Er], = 0.2 V.

Thus, L must be smaller and no correspondingly larger. As a result, the power dissipation P, which is proportional to nuL, is about the same encording to this simple analysis. However, the power (lensity, which is proportional to no, is larger for higher frequency devices. This is important, since P/AL is critical to heat dissipation requirements. £392. 10.6 (a) Calculaic the ratio of the densities of states in the F and L conduction bands in 041245.
