Abstract

This chapter presents the results of an investigation of the attenuation and amplification of acoustic waves by electrons in semiconductors. Emphasis is put on the criteria of applicability of the different existing theories to various regions of acoustic wave frequencies, semiconductor properties and external conditions. We consider the drag of free electrons by acoustic waves, which leads to the acoustoelectric effect, acoustomagnetoelectric effect, acoustothermal effect, etc. The nonlinear effects of acoustoelectronic interactions, such as the dependence of the acoustic wave attenuation coefficient and velocity on the amplitude of the acoustic waves, the non-ohmic behaviour of the current-voltage curve of the specimen, and the generation of harmonics, are also considered. The specific features of acoustoelectronic interactions for surface acoustic waves are pointed out. A comparison of the theory of acoustoelectronic interactions with the experimental data is briefly given.
