A Liénard oscillator resonant tunnelling diode-laser diode hybrid integrated circuit: Model and experiment
MetadataShow full item record
We report on a hybrid optoelectronic integrated circuit based on a resonant tunnelling diode driving an optical communications laser diode. This circuit can act as a voltage controlled oscillator with optical and electrical outputs. We show that the oscillator operation can be described by Liénard's equation, a second order nonlinear differential equation, which is a generalization of the Van der Pol equation. This treatment gives considerable insight into the potential of a monolithic version of the circuit for optical communication functions including clock recovery and chaotic source applications. © 2008 IEEE.

Wang, L.; Figueiredo, J.; Ironside, Charlie; Wasige, E. (2011)A common problem in designing with Esaki tunneling diodes in circuits is parasitic oscillations, which occur when these devices are biased in their negative differential resistance (NDR) region. Because of this, the ...
