Abstract : One object of the patent is to provide Gunn devices, or the like, electrically connected in series and thermally connected in parallel. Another object is to provide a plurality of Gunn devices having ease of fabrication. A further object is to provide a plurality of Gunn devices which operate satisfactorily when connected in series. Briefly, these and other objects of the patent are attained by providing a plurality of Gunn devices fabricated along a single layer of active semiconductor material. Corresponding ohmic contacts located on each side of the semiconductive layer overlap to define a plurality of Gunn devices which are electrically connected in series and thermally connected in parallel. If desired, the Gunn devices may be fabricated such that the plurality of devices operate in phase.
