ABSTRACT
Characterization of microplasmas has been performed on InP-In0.53Ga0.47As avalanche photodiodes using electron induced current and low-temperature cathodoluminescence measurements. Microplasmas are shown to be associated with a local increase of the electric field resulting from doping fluctuations which are tentatively associated with impurity segregation at crystal imperfections.
