We study the intrinsic ultracontractivity of the semigroup of the isotropic stable process on an unbounded open set. A two-sided estimate of the first eigenfunction of the semigroup is derived. We obtain general geometric conditions for intrinsic ultracontractivity which yield a necessary and sufficient condition for non-degenerate horn-shaped sets.
