IMPATT AND TRAPATT DIODES PDF

The first IMPATT oscillation was obtained from a simple silicon p—n junction diode biased into a reverse avalanche break down and mounted in a microwave cavity. Because of the strong dependence of the ionization coefficient on the electric field, most of the electron—hole pairs are generated in the high field region. The generated electron immediately moves into the N region, while the generated holes drift across the P region. The time required for the hole to reach the contact constitutes the transit time delay. The Read diode consists of two regions i The Avalanche region a region with relatively high doping and high field in which avalanche multiplication occurs and ii the drift region a region with essentially intrinsic doping and constant field in which the generated holes drift towards the contact. A similar device can be built with the configuration in which electrons generated from the avalanche multiplication drift through the intrinsic region.

A Point A the electric field is uniform throughout the sample and its magnitude is large but les than the value required for avalanche breakdown. Since the charge carriers present are those caused by thermal generation, the diode initially charge up like a linear capacitor, driving the magnitude of the electric field above the breakdown voltage. When sufficient number of carrier is generated, the particle current exceeds the external current and the electric field is depressed throughout the depletion region, causing the voltage to decrease.

This portion of the cycle is known by the curve from point B to point C. During this time interval the electric field is sufficiently large for the avalanche to continue and a dense plasma of electrons and holes is created.

When this current pulse actually arrives at the cathode terminal, the ac voltage is at its negative peak and the second delay of A large time is required to remove the plasma because total plasma charge is large compared to the charge per unit time in the external current.

At point E plasma is removed. As the residual charge is removed, the voltage increases from point E to point F. At point F all the charge generated internally has been removed. From point F to G the diode charged up again like a fixed capacitor.

TRAPATT Diode Fundamentals

Phased array radar, etc. These are the latest invention in this family. The negative resistance in a BARITT diode is obtained on account of the drift of the injected holes to the collector end of the diode, made of p-type material. A rapid increase in current with applied voltage above 30v is due to the thermionic hole injection into the semiconductor. The substrate on which circuit elements are fabricated is important as the dielectric constant of the material should be high with low dissipation factor, along with other ideal characteristics.
