|Title:||Drifting electron excitation of acoustic phonons: Cerenkov-like effect in n-GaN|
|Abstract:||The process of generation of acoustic phonons by way of drifting electron excitation in polar semiconductors is considered. Similarly to what is present in LO phonons, the emergence of a condensation of the pumped energy in modes around an off-center region of the Brillouin zone is evidenced. The phonons are emitted within a lobe-like distribution with an axis along the direction of the electric field. A numerical calculation for the case of GaN is done, which shows that the phenomenon can be largely enhanced at high carrier densities and in strong piezoelectric materials.
