The noise sources in BARITT diodes are described. The noise measure is calculated numerically and compared with experimental results. The optimum noise measure at 8 GHz was determined by varying the device width for given current density and doping density. The best noise measure of 9 dB was obtained for a doping of 2.5 x 1015/cm3 and a current density of 60 A/cm2.
