An attempt has been made to use in intercoupled transmission line with tunnel diodes as a pulse amplifier for driving, in particular, high-speed diode logic circuits. For this purpose hot-electron diodes were used. The voltage swing of the amplifier is limited by the characteristics of tunnel diodes. It is not large enough to drive hot-electron diodes without bias. Hence it is necessary to bias the diodes properly. A satisfactory result was obtained for the case where overall voltage gain, including voltage attenuation due to internal resistance of hot-electron diodes, was less then unity. Further trails to obtain a higher voltage gain have been done. The results were not satisfactory, however. Author
