This letter focuses on the analysis of the spatio-temporal dynamics of charge domains in strongly coupled semiconductor superlattices with the Ohmic emitter and collector contacts. Our numerical simulations, based on the semiclassical approximation of the electron transport, show that the collector doping can dramatically affect the charge dynamics in the semiconductor structure and, therefore, the output AC power. We demonstrate that the appropriately chosen doping of the collector contacts can considerably increase the power of the generated signal.
