Self-modulation behaviour has been observed in GaAs Gunn oscillators operating at W-band, leading to nanosecond pulses of relatively high peak power. Pulse repetition rates and pulse-widths can be varied reproducibly as a function of bias voltage and bias line termination, and there is evidence for semi-chaotic behaviour in certain regimes.
