    Resonant-tunnelling diodes (RTD) incorporating an emitter stepped pre-barrier are studied both theoretically and experimentally. The simulation of I-V characteristics of modified AlAs-GaAs double barrier RTD grown by molecular beam epitaxy with the stepped pre-barrier is presented. An 1D quantum transport simulator Wingreen based on the nonequilibrium Green functions (NEGF) is used in our case. Our result show that the coupling between energy levels in the emitter quantum-well and the main quantum well leads to the plateau behaviour of the I-V curves. The two plateau regions on the I-V characteristics have been observed in experimental and simulation results.
