The results оf experimental аnd theoretical investigations of the nonlinear phenomena in microwave and optical semiconductor oscillators are represented. It is shown that one оf the reasons of occurrence оf various nonlinear phenomena in semiconductor devices оf the microwave range is qualitative change оf their voltage-current characteristics, in particular occurrence оr disappearance of sections оf negative differential resistance under the influence оf high-power microwave radiation оn semiconductor structures. The external optical feedback forming autodyne operating mode of semiconductor lasers acts as the priority mechanism оf realization of their nonlinear operating mode in semiconductor laser structures.
