    The analysis of hopping conductivity requires a complete quantum-statistical description of a pair of sites between which an electron jump takes place. This description includes a double-charged energy level, the energy being increased by the Coulomb repulsion of the charges. The inclusion of...

    A model for describing hopping thermopower is proposed. Within the model, the majority and compensating impurities form a simple cubic lattice in a crystal matrix. The thermopower associated with hole (electron) hopping over hydrogen-like impurities is calculated with inclusion of their excited...

    It is shown that injection currents in structures with blocked hopping conduction (the so-called BIB structures) may be interpreted as Richardson thermionic currents flowing through potential barriers. The latter are governed by the electron chemical potential in the N[sup ++]-N[sup +] (N[sup...
