Abstract : The investigation of the hysteresis occurring in the threshold conditions for the helical instability oscillations in electron-hole plasma has been extended. The hysteresis in electric field strength E can exceed 45 V/cm and 50% of the applied E at threshold. By determining the stability-instability boundary in p-InSb as a function of the parallel (or anti-parallel) electric and magnetic field strengths and also the plasma denstiy, the magnetic field induced by the formation of the helical density perturbation is deduced. Resulting displaced loop B-H curves are presented. (Author)
