In this work we have studied volt-ampere characteristics of single core-shell GaN/InGaN/GaN nanowire. It was experimentally shown that negative differential resistance effect can be obtained in the studied heterostructure. On the base of numerical calculation results the model describing negative differential resistance phenomenon was proposed. We assume this effect to be related with strong localization of current flow inside the nanowire and emergence of Gunn effect in this area.
