Monolithic integration of tunnel diode-based inverters on exact (001) Si substrates for the future high-speed, low-power, and compact digital circuits is demonstrated. A two-state inverter was fabricated using a forward biased fin-array tunnel diode as drive and a reverse-biased counterpart as load. On-chip operation and reduced fabrication complexity were achieved by exploiting the resistive characteristic of the reverse-biased tunnel diodes and the pre-defined patterns on the Si substrate
