Abstract : SIGNAL. Suppose input signal is an amplitude modulated signal whose modulating signal is es sin omega and the degree of modulation is very small. From the experimental results, the insertion gain ig equals A/B is larger than 14 where A is the peak value of output signal corresponding to es with a tunnel diode beingACTIVE AND B is the peak value Identifiers: Tunnel diodes. By use of a tunnel diode, it is possible to design a detector which is capable of amplifying a detected signal. Suppose input signal is an amplitude modulated signal whose modulating signal is es sin omega and the degree of modulation is very small. From the experimental results, the insertion gain ig equals A/B is larger than 14 where A is the peak value of output signal corresponding to es with a tunnel diode beingACTIVE AND B is the peak value of output signal corresponding to es with the tunnel diode being shorted. If the input signal is an amplitude modulated wave with small percentage of modulation, a tunnel diode detector is a very practical circuit which has advantages over an ordinal diode detector.
