Electrical conduction in semiconductors at low temperatures

Abstract:

This thesis is concerned with the study of the magnetophonon effect in a wide range of semiconductors. The five materials investigated are n-InP, n-CdSe, n-Ge, p-Ge and p-GaAs. The effect which was first predicted in a theoretical paper by Gurevich and Firaov (1951) arises from the resonant coupling of optical phonons with conduction electrons in an applied magnetic field. Extrema occur in the magnetoresistance when the phonon energy approaches an integral number of Landau level spacings. ...
