ABSTRACT Resonant tunneling has been demonstrated through a variety of molecular‐beam epitaxially grown HgCdTe heterostructures. Single‐quantum‐well, double‐barrier resonant tunneling structures with a large variation in quantum well widths and barrier thicknesses were investigated. We also present results on transport through two strongly coupled superlattices, which exhibit negative differential resistance due to energy filtering by the superlattice minibands.
