The presence of parasitic oscillations found in the negative differential region (NDR), which can distort the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of the device is one of the main problems when designing resonant tunnelling diode (RTD) circuits. A new method for RTD stabilization is proposed based on work done previously on tunnel diodes and results show that there is a significant difference between the I-V characteristics of a tunnel diode and that of an RTD. This work shows promising potential for further increasing the RTD’s output power, DC-RF conversion efficiency and provides the basis for an accurate model of the NDR region
