In this paper, a novel infrared sensitive negative-differential-resistance (NDR) device has been achieved. This device can be operated at 100°C, indicating its excellent characteristic. Under daylight, the device exhibits a negative-differential-resistance property and the peak-to-valley current ratio (PVCR) is still prominent at 100°C. When the device's forward bias is fixed, device's current changes with infrared light power. So, it is sensitive to infrared light. Its operational mechanism is interpreted in detail, too.
