On the Hydrodynamics of the Electron-Hole Plasma Phase Transition in Highly Excited Semiconductors
The dynamics of the phase separation in the system of electronic excitations in highly excited semiconductors is treated within a hydrodynamical model, taking into account diffusion of the electron-hole pairs due to the local chemical potential and generation and recombination of electron-hole pairs. The equation of motion for the two point correlation function of the local density of electronic excitations is established and the Fourier transformed correlation function, i.e. the structure factor, is calculated.
