Abstract:

The interaction of CO2 and CO laser radiation with the semiconductor InSb has been studied at liquid helium temperatures with the Shubnikov-de Haas effect and the photoconductivity at zero magnetic field. The electron heating that results is characterized by a determination of the electron temperature for various CO2 and CO laser frequencies and powers. The CO2 laser-induced heating is shown to result from free carrier absorption processes, while the CO laser-induced heating is shown to result from impurity level andor direct interband transitions.
