Paper Abstract

Instabilities in solid state plasmas can potentially be used in a solid state analogue of the travelling wave amplifier. In this device, a direct transfer of energy from a constant current into plasma oscillations takes place. An experimental test will be proposed to determine whether or not this effect is possible in a modulation-doped superlattice. This test is based on calculations of the Raman spectrum of a layered electron gas in the presence of a constant current.
