    The leakage current in the semi-insulating substrate of a GaAs device measured in a conventional voltage-controlled experiment shows hysteresis. Experiments in constant-current conditions show that this arises from an S-type negative differential conductivity. These features are incompatible...

    A theoretical k[sup *]p model for the linear electro-optic (LEO) spectrum near the E[sub 1]/E[sub 1]+Δ[sub 1] energies is presented. The calculated spectrum reproduces the important features of the experimental ones. In particular, it explains the observed energy shifts of the resonance near...

    The external quantum efficiency of p-GaSb/n-GaAs heterojunction TPV cells has been enhanced by using a thin n-GaSb buffer layer between the GaAs and the p-GaSb to offset the p-n junction from the heterojunction. Cells with the p-n junction displaced from the heterojunction showed a significant...
