Abstract : Recent developments in crystal growing techniques were employed to grow two highly doped GalliumArsenide crystals. Both crystals produced satisfactory tunnel diodes. Cunnel diodes were made having a ring junction geometry. Although the process worked well, the electrical parameters were not as good as hoped for. A new tunable oscillator circuit was made and tested. A power output of 26 to 30 mw was obtained over the required frequency fange. (Author)
