Abstract: Molecular beam epitaxy is employed to manufacture self-assembled InAs-AlAsquantum-dot resonant tunneling diodes. Resonant tunneling current issuperimposed on the thermal current, and they make up the total electrontransport in devices. Steps in current-voltage characteristics and peaks incapacitance-voltage characteristics are explained as electron resonanttunneling via quantum dots at 77K or 300K, and this is the first time thatresonant tunneling is observed at room temperature in III-V quantum-dotmaterials. Hysteresis loops in the curves are attributed to hot electroninjection-emission process of quantum dots, which indicates the concomitantcharging-discharging effect.
