We present results of resonant tunneling diode operation achieved from a particle-based quantum ensemble Monte Carlo (EMC) simulation that is based on the Wigner distribution function (WDF). Methods of including the Wigner potential into the EMC, to incorporate natural quantum phenomena, via a particle property we call the affinity are discussed. Dissipation is included via normal Monte Carlo procedures and the solution is coupled to a Poisson solver to achieve fully selfconsistent results.
