Remarkable effects of uniaxial stress on stimulated far IR emission from hot holes in germanium in crossed electric and magnetic fields

Stimulated far IR emission due to l-h as well as cyclotron transitions of hot holes in uniaxially stressedp-Ge (P ∥HE) was studied. The results obtained showed the significance of intersub-band hole tunnelling for these mechanisms of generation and may be explained by a change in tunnelling produced by the stress. A considerable expansion of the stimulated light hole cyclotron emission band was observed in a stressed crystal. This expansion allows covering (in one sample) of all generation bands in the light hole cyclotron resonance (CR) masers in unstressedp-Ge, reported so far.
