Abstract

Monte-Carlo results on the velocity-field characteristics, ac diffusion-constant and thermal-noise voltages are presented for In0.765Ga0.235As0.5P0.5 at 300K. Recently available values of physical constants have been used in the calculations. The values of diffusion constants are close to those of InP but the thermal noise voltages are found to increase faster with the field. The peak velocity is 1.9 × 107 cm/s and the threshold field for negative differential mobility is about 6 kV/cm.
