ABSTRACT
Impact ionization rates in (111) oriented InP have been derived in the temperature range 77–293 K from photomultiplication data measured on a planar-type InP avalanche diode, and have been compared with those in (100) oriented InP. It has been found that there is no marked difference in electron ionization rates between the <111> and <100> orientations. This result confirms that no ballistic impact ionization occurs in InP at the measured electric field range of 4.1×105 V cm≤E≤5.6×105 V cm.
