Hot Electron Distribution Function in Quantizing Magnetic Fields

  • D. Calecki
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 52)


The successful generation of strong magnetic fields has made it possible to investigate experimentally hot electrons in semiconduc tors under conditions of quantization of their orbital motion. Such magnetic fields B are called “quantizing fields”; they alter significantly the field free electronic energy spectrum. The electron motion in the plane perpendicular to B is quantized is. Landau states and the remaining degree of freedom of motion along B constitutes one-dimensional subbands, each of which is associated with one of the Landau states [Landau (1930)]. Moreover, the electronic density of states has an oscillatory structure with divergences characteristic of the one dimensional motion.
