In quantizing high magnetic fields, highly nonequilibrium electron-hole plasmas can be excited in bulk n-InSb samples at low temperatures, when a constant dc current \(\hat x\) is passed through the sample across the magnetic field H (∥ ẑ), resulting in stimulated interband Landau emission, as shown in Fig. 1.1–3
