Abstract

Drag of charge carriers in a superlattice subjected to a constant axially oriented electric field by an electromagnetic wave also propagating along the axis is considered. The drag-current density is calculated and its dependence on the constant-field strength E1 and the electromagnetic-wave intensity I is analyzed. Reversals of the current direction are found to occur for certain values of E1 and I.
