Negativ differentiel modstand
En komponent eller et kredsløbs dynamiske modstand eller differentielle modstand er defineret ved: R(I)=dU/dI eller R(U)=dU/dI, hvor R er den dynamiske modstand ved hhv. strømmen I eller spændingen U, U er spændingen over komponenten og I er strømmen gennem komponenten.
Der findes simple komponenter, som har negativ differentiel modstand (NDR), på visse dele af deres modstandskarakteristik. Nogle af disse er tunneldiode, diac, Gunn diode, IMPATT-Diode, mikrobølge avalanchediode, resonanstunneldiode, unijunction-transistor (ujt), resonanstunneltransistor, plasma, lysbuer (f.eks. gasudladningsrør og dermed lysstofrør). 
Selvom en komponent er ulinear og har negativ differentiel modstand, er den som regel i mindre strøm- og spændings-intervaller linear, hvilket betyder at den differentielle modstand i intervallet er konstant.
I netop et nogenlunde lineart interval med negativ differentiel modstand, kan komponenten forstærke signaler nogenlunde lineart. En af de simpleste eksempler er at sætte komponenten i serie med en svingningskreds.
Afhængig af om svingningskredsens samlede tab (inkl. evt. ekstern belastningsmodstand) delvis ophæves, netop ophæves eller mere end ophæves, så vil kredsløbet hhv. fungere som en afstemt forstærker, bibeholde en igangsat svingning eller fungerer som en oscillator.
Der findes også kredsløb, som udviser negativ differentiel modstand, på visse dele af deres modstandskarateristik. Nogle af disse er: Lambda-diode, gyrator, Negativ impedanskonverter (eng. Negative Impedance Converter) (NIC), Genereliseret impedanskonverter (eng. Generalized Impedance Converter) (GIC), Frekvensafhængig negativ modstand (eng. frequency-dependent negative resistor) (FDNR).

V. Lossev, Lossew] (1903-1942) ( See link below ) managed to make a high frequency generator using such a detector. But it was polarized. This indicates that this diode had a characteristic curve in which a negative slope was present. And this makes one think of the tunnel effect diode invented a half a century later...These layouts where part of what one called CRYSTADYNE [eller Cristadyne, Crystodyne ] systems. But in those days, the technical performance and industrial ease of the new increasing valve technology made these layouts to be ignored, and then forgotten..."

The same contact may also be utilized as an amplifier. Oscillating crystals are not new since they were investigated as far back as 1906 by well known engineers, but it was not until lately that a Russian engineer, Mr. O. V. Lossev, succeeded in finding some interesting uses for oscillating crystals..."

That this is a revolutionary radio invention need be emphasized no further.

Eccles in 1910, and remarked: “It is hard to realize that it took about ten years for practical active crystal-diode circuits to appear, in spite of Ditcham's reminder—circuits that included both RF and AF amplification...Most of the credit for creating practical devices [of this kind] goes to O. V. Lossev of Russia, whether or not he knew of Eccles' pioneer work a decade earlier..."
- 'Energy-sucking' Radio Antennas, N. Tesla's Power Receiver Citat: "...The truth is quite strange...By manipulating the EM fields, we can force an electrically-small receiving antenna to behave as if it was very, VERY large...In theory a tiny loop antenna can work as well as a longwire 1/2-wave antenna which is 10KM long...The energy doesn't vanish, instead it ends up INSIDE the atom. By resonantly creating an "anti-wave", the tiny atom has "sucked energy" out of the enormously long light waves as they go by...When all is said and done, our oscillating coil has absorbed half of the incoming EM energy and re-emitted (or "scattered") the rest..."
