In this paper we report experimental and theoretical studies of resonant tunneling and the first observation of resonant tunneling in variably spaced multiple quantum well structures designed for electron injection at voltages between 0.1 and 0.2V. The experiments are in good agreement with a resonant tunneling theory developed for these structures.
