Sorry, you need a Java-enabled browser to see the simulation.

This example shows a tunnel diode, a device that demonstrates negative resistance. The graphs at the lower right shows current versus voltage. When the applied voltage is increased, most devices have increased current flow. But the tunnel diode has a region where increased voltage will cause reduced current; this is the downward-sloping part of the graph.
