Original Abstract

The occurence of microplasma regions in PN junctions is attributed to crystal lattice imperfections. As a rule, these regions feature lower strong-field avalanche ionization breakdown voltages than other homogenous PN junction regions. The existence of such regions may lead to local avalanche breakdowns occuring in reverse-biased PN junctions at certain voltage. These local avalanche breakdowns affect course of VA characteristics. VA characteristics can exhibit regions with negative differential resistance in certain conditions and number of these regions correspond to number of microplasma regions in PN junction.
