High-frequency conductivity of metals in degenerate semiconductors with extrinsic electron states


Spatial dispersion is taken into account in calculations of the dissipative part of the transverse conductivity of weakly alloyed semiconductors. Local and resonant states of the electrons are considered. The maxima of the conductivity are observed for transitions between local, resonant, and band electron states.
