Paper Abstract

The transport of highly excited carriers is governed by their energy loss to phonons. There is a special interest in a thorough understanding of this phenomenon in semiconductors, as it can be of help in determining the characteristics of ultrasmall, high field devices. Recently developed steady-state electric-field-induced heating techniques provide a very adequate tool to study hot electrons since the electronic measurement of the power innut to the electron system, together with the optical determination of the electron temperature, gives a direct determination of the nower loss (P) of hot electrons as a function of temperature (T) for a fixed electron density (n).
