Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

This letter shows how the splitting of the forward and reverse current/voltage curves of a Gunn diode may be interpreted in terms of different models of contact damage, and proposes a simple test technique to obtain a quantitative measure of contact quality. Experimental verification of this technique is presented, showing a correlation between device efficiency and a contact parameter ß.
