A new three-terminal device, the surface resonant tunneling transistor, is realized by the molecular beam epitaxial cleaved edge overgrowth technique in the GaAs/AlGaAs system. The device exhibits negative transconductance as well as negative differential resistance. Some possibilities for future applications of the device to low-power logic circuits are discussed.
