Production of nonequilibrium plasmas in indium antimonide ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Electrons and holes in excess of their thermal equilibrium density are generally produced in a semiconductor by one (or more) of these three means: (1) electrical injection, (2) optical injection, or (3) impact ionization. If the excess carrier density so produced is large compared with the recombination center density, a 2-component, electron-hole plasma results which is analogous to an electron-ion plasma. The work described here is motivated by the desire to obtain a fundamental understanding of electron-hole plasmas in their transient state and nonequilibrium steady-state. (Author)

Plasma effects in semiconductors by Betsy Ancker-Johnson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The review begins with a survey of nonequilibrium plasma production methods and the properties of such plasmas in their as-produced state. The methods are injection, impact ionization, and two-photon absorption. The description of the as-produced properties includes previously unpublished information about plasma distribution during injection and characteristic times involved in plasma decay. Two plasma effects, beyond those associated with plasma production, are discussed in detail, namely the pinch effect and microwave radiation. The status of the theories and experiments describing pinch formation and its properties thereafter are critically examined so that the open questions emerge. No theory for microwave radiation exists. The plethora of observations are grouped into four sets of characteristics: the threshold conditions, the spectrum of the radiation, its polar dependence, and the attendant low frequency (MHz) resistance oscillations. Recent experiments show that a magnetic field is not essential for emission, and some simple, reasonable arguments about the role of a magnetic field in producing radiation, if true, reconcile the conflicting reports concerning the four sets of characteristics.

Magnetoconductance of nonequilibrium plasmas in insb by Betsy Ancker-Johnson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The conductance of injected and impact-ionized plasmas in p-InSb at 77 degrees K has been measured as a function of amplitude and direction of magnetic field relative to the electric field strength. Very large anisotropy in magnetoconductance occurs as the relative orientation between electric and magnetic fields is varied, and in the vicinity of the maxima large amplitude conductance oscillations develop with a frequency in the tens of MHz range. The plasma magnetoconductance for given magnitudes of applied fields abruptly drops to zero at a precisely defined orientation theta between the fields. Impact-ionized plasmas produce current-field strength characteristics with negative resistance re-ions both in the presence and absence of magnetic fields. These effects are qualitatively explained

Lifetimes of nonequilibrium carriers in magnetic traps ( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Nonequilibrium electrons and holes in approximately equal density are produced in p-InSb at 77 K by forcing a current greater than ohmic through the sample. The density decays exponentially after an initial rapid decay occurring in <or equivalent to 200 nsec. The lifetime in the exponential region is 0.92 = 0.05 microsecond in the nonequilibrium carrier density range 0.9 to 2.1 x 10 to the 13th power cm to the -3rd power when no magnetic fields are applied. The excess carrier density in the presence of a magnetic trap compared with that in its absence after a given decay time is observed to be enhanced by as much as 65%. The trap configuration used in these measurements is achieved by superposition of three static fields: (A) a uniform axial one, H sub a; (B) a symmetric non-uniform axial field emanating from two current coils located one each in the planes of the sample ends, H sub em, where em signifies 'end mirror'; (C) an axially symmetric transverse field in the form of a quadrupolar cusp, H sub wm, where wm signifies 'wall mirror'.

Hysteresis in stability conditions of electronhole plasma ( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The investigation of the hysteresis occurring in the threshold conditions for the helical instability oscillations in electron-hole plasma has been extended. The hysteresis in electric field strength E can exceed 45 V/cm and 50% of the applied E at threshold. By determining the stability-instability boundary in p-InSb as a function of the parallel (or anti-parallel) electric and magnetic field strengths and also the plasma denstiy, the magnetic field induced by the formation of the helical density perturbation is deduced. Resulting displaced loop B-H curves are presented. (Author)

Nanosecond risetime, high power, variable delay double pulser with application to electron-hole plasmas ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A new double pulse system has been designed and tested which offers several advantages over previous methods of generating and delaying one squarewave pulse with respect to another. Characteristics of the new system are, fast rise and fall times (2 nanoseconds typical); high power pulses (150 V into 50 ohms); very low time jitter (less than 0.2% of pulse separation time); accurate repeatability of time delay plus or minus 1% typical); extremely wide range of time delay (nanoseconds to milliseconds); d.c. readout of the time separation of the two pulses accurate to plus or minus 1% and suitable for x-y pen recorders. A special summing junction circuit allows both pulses to be applied to the same load without power being split between the load and the other pulse generator, and also without the first pulse prematurely triggering the second pulse or affecting its amplitude. Some results obtained by applying this system to the study of electron-hole plasma decay are briefly presented. (Author)

Microwave emission from nonequilibrium plasmas in insb subject to magnetic fields by Betsy Ancker-Johnson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The paper draws together a large amount of experimental information obtained by others as well as the author. Out of the maze of conflicting, at best, and contradictory, at worst, results, one set of consistent characteristics of the emission and its associated phenomena results. The reconciliation is obtained by means of a theory for the spatial distribution of plasmas during emission. It shows why some samples emit preferentially for B parallel to E, others for B perpendicular to E, and still others for intermediate orientation. The theory also clarifies the various observed threshold dependencies. The conflicting results concerning the spectral characteristics of the emission are attributed to faulty experimental techniques. Thus four characteristics of the emission and its associated phenomena are clearly described qualitatively, the spectrum, the polar dependencies, the sometimes attendant MHz resistance oscillations, and the threshold dependencies on E and B
