High-density delta doping of semiconductors may result in partial ordering of dopant atoms. Under suitable circumstances, periodic delta doping leads to significant suppression of elastic scattering and a consequent enhancement in charge carrier mobility.

    Ferrobielastic switching is observed by measuring the change in the frequency of a compound acoustic cavity made from a langasite (La[sub 3]Ga[sub 5]SiO[sub 14]) single crystal, under uniaxial pressure. The effect is detected from the jump in the cavity frequency at the point of switching. In...
