Nonlinear theory of surface-helical instability of a semiconductor plasma. III. Analysis of nonlinear effects

Abstract

Results obtained earlier in [1, 2] are used to calculate the nonlinear parameters of the helical instability of a semiconductor plasma that fills a half-space. It is found that in semiconductors with intrinsic or almost intrinsic conduction an “explosive” type of instability development occurs, this being due to the effect of the electric self-field of the wave.
