Abstract

The J-E characteristic of InSb shows an instability at short times after application of the electric field. A transverse magnetic field lets the instability occur at a lower electric field. The Hall field shows a sharp drop simultaneously to the instability. Carrier concentrations at the threshold field are measured for various magnetic fields.
