Experimental evidence is presented indicating that the high-efficiency low-frequency oscillation in avalanche diodes is parametrically generated. It is determined that the high efficiency is only observed when the transit time or pump frequency is an integer harmonic of the low-frequency oscillation and extended avalanche is excited.
