The results of a partial literature survey on tunnel diode amplifiers are presented. The gap existing between the analytical work and practical design is discussed. Limitations of presently available synthesis techniques are pointed out along with the practical problems which these limitations impose. Results on an experimental C-band amplifier are presented. Sensitivity data on a commercial available backward diode are also presented. The anticipated performance of a proposed high power harmonic generation system is discussed. Preliminary analysis of a varactor tunable tunnel diode oscillator is presented. Results of additional theoretical work on the coherent Doppler radar are briefly discussed.
