Abstract : Work continued on both the P-type germanium and gallium antimonide tunnel diode, exploiting the semiconductor-glass semiconductor (sandwich) technology. Not having developed a satisfactory bonding procedure for a gallium antimonide sandwich tunnel diode it was decided to concentrate on the germanium tunnel diode. P-type germanium tunnel diodes were made with a wide range of characteristics. The preliminary device specifications are established and tunnel diode asseblies being made to achieve the reproducibility desired. (Author)
