Why is it important?

This study makes it possible to find new physical phenomena at the quantum level that are not dealt with at the classical level. Our findings show that electronic devices can be used as resonant tunnel diode (RTD), transistors, among others.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations and others that started with this article as is the case Y.-P. Wang, and H.-P. Cheng. I highlight new calculations and codes to new devices design in the area of ​​information technology, telecommunications, electronics, among other areas. I hope this article makes what people might think is a boring, slightly area. More than anything else, and if nothing else, I hope you find this article thought-provoking.
