The self-excitation of plasma oscillations in a resonant-tunneling transistor structure is studied. It is demonstrated that it can give rise to the generation of transient current at frequencies in the terahertz range. The amplitudes and the frequencies of different modes of the generated oscillations are voltage-tuned.
