Mobility of Electrons in Non-Crystalline Materials

On the occasion of Heinz Henisch’s retirement I remember him for many things. His early book, published by the Oxford University Press, on rectifying semiconductor contacts, written I think when Heinz was still at Reading University in the U.K.; his creation and editorship of the hugely enjoyable journal, “The Histoiy of Photography” but above all for his experimental work on the Ovonic threshold switch, which I followed with close interest while trying to make a theory of what was happening in this device (Mott 1969, 1971, 1975).
