The ballistic electron transport characteristics of hyperbolic Poschl-Teller double-barrier resonant tunneling structures are investigated. The transmission coefficient and the current density-voltage characteristic in electrically biased one dimensional hyperbolic Poschl-Teller double-barrier structures with different structure parameters have been calculated by using non-equilibrium Green's function method. Results for the transmission coefficients and the current densities are compared with the barrier shapes. The results show that the widths of the wells and heights of barriers have a significant effect on the transmission properties. The current density-voltage characteristic presents N-type negative differential resistance.
