Title: Nonlinear-driven instability of dynamical plasma in solids: Emergence of spatially self-organized order and chaotic-like behavior

Abstract: We analyze in detail the nonlinear kinetics of a carrier system in a photoinjected plasma in semiconductors under the action of constant illumination with ultraviolet light. We show that the spatially homogeneous steady-state becomes unstable, and a charge density wave emerges after a critical intensity of the incident radiation is achieved. It is shown that this instability can only follow in doped p-type materials. In bulk systems the critical intensity was found to be too high making the phenomenon not observable under realistic experimental conditions. However, a more efficient electron excitation can be obtained in low dimensional p-type systems, like some molecular and biological polymers, where the interaction may follow by chemical interaction with the medium. We show that for intensities beyond the critical threshold an increasing number of modes provide further contributions (subharmonics) to the space inhomogeneity. It is conjectured that this process could lead the system to display chaotic-like behavior.
