The I-V characteriistics of the double tunnel junction Sn-I-Sn-Pb, a component of the multilayer tunnel structure Pb-I-Pb-I-Sn-I-Sn-I-Pb, were measured both under and without the influence of phonons produced in the generator junction (Pb-I-Pb). It is found that the summary I-V curves display features at voltages (ΔPbSn) e, 2ΔSn e, and (ΔSnPb) e, showing that the mechanism of tunneling in vertically stacked junctions can differ from that in the usual series junction array.
