Abstract

The hall field in InSb shows an instability in the nanosecond range and a saturation after longer periods. This saturation has been interpreted as transverse breakdown by M. Glicksman et al. The instability in the nanosecond range is closely connected to an instability in the J-E characteristic which has been reported by Ancker-Johnson. The threshold current of these instabilities can be reduced by a magnetic field. This reduction appears not only at transverse magnetic fields but also at longitudinal fields, while a small transverse field is applied to cause the Hall field.
