Smooth quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) model simulations of the resonant tunneling diode are presented which exhibit enhanced negative differential resistance (NDR) when compared to simulations using the original O(i(Latin small letter h with stroke sign) 2) QHD model. At both 300 K and 77 K, the smooth QHD simulations predict significant NDR even when the original QHD model simulations predict no NDR.
