The authors report the performance of various planar metal insulator metal MIM tunneling diodes, which are being investigated for use in rectenna devices for energy harvesting applications. Six cathode materials M2 Nb, Ag, Cu, Ni, Au, and Pt are studied in conjunction with Nb as the anode M1 and Nb2O5 I as the dielectric. The cathode materials selections were based on results from a prior rapid-screening study that employed a bent-wire metal cathode point-contact method.
