"The problem, as presented, is to derive analytical expressions for the conversion gain, bandwidth, and noise figure of a self excited tunnel diode converter and to verify, if possible, the validity of these express- ions by building such a converter. These analytical results are presented and discussed. The converter circuit is shown along with the resulting intermediate frequency output. Gain and bandwidth measurements are also given. It is concluded that the self excited converter could very definitely be of value as a low noise pre-amplifying device in the ultra-high frequency and microwave frequency ranges"--Abstract, page ii.
