5.A similar expression has been obtained by Sokolovski in the limit [D. Sokolovski, Phys. Rev. B 37, 4201 (1988)].
5.The derivation of Eq. (2), which is exact for constant Γ, follows a scattering approach developed to treat electron‐phonon interaction in resonant tunneling [N. S. Wingreen, K. W. Jacobsen, and J. W. Wilkins, Phys. Rev. Lett. 61, 1396 (1988);
5.N. S. Wingreen, K. W. Jacobsen, and J. W. Wilkins, Phys. Rev. B 40, 11834 (1989)]. For an energy‐dependent Γ, the coefficient of rectification can still be obtained exactly from a perturbative expansion of to order

7.To obtain the usual coefficient of rectification, defined with the ac voltage place of one must relate the resonant‐level energy to the applied bias M. Cahay, M. McLennan, S. Datta, and M. S. Lundstrom, Appl. Phys. Lett. 50, 612 (1987). Since this relation is expected to be linear in the negative differential conductance region, the behavior of plotted versus resonant‐level energy will be the same as that of the experimental rectification plotted versus dc bias.
8.The weight under the positive and negative peaks in must balance since the sum rule on implies independent of the oscillation, from which it follows that
9.The broadening with frequency of the central peak in in Fig. 2(b) explains the resonance reported by Frensley in vs ω (Ref. 4). In the case of narrow sidebands as a function of frequency becomes large and negative near where the lower transmission sideband drops below the band edge causing an abrupt drop in the current. As frequency increases further, the decay of the sideband amplitude as causes to fall as giving rise to a resonant shape.
10.An estimate of the intrinsic resonance width in Sollner’s structure, following Ricco and Azhel
10.B. Ricco and M. Ya. Azbel, Phys. Rev. B 29, 1970 (1984), gives for biases in the negative differential conductance region.
