The Benard phenomenon in a semiconductor. Influence of the external electric field

  • A. I. Temchin


It is shown that placing a specimen in an electric field affords the possibility of expanding the class of semiconductors for which light absorption can cause the formation of a periodic electron temperature distribution. The light flux and potential difference necessary for this are estimated.
