A novel device is proposed, based upon a tunneling hot electron transfer amplifier, which exhibits the characteristics of negative differential resistance (NDR) coupled with high current gain. The mechanism which produces the NDR is known to be extremely fast. The combination of these features suggests that such a device could be used as a high power source of terahertz radiation. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.
