Original Abstract

Local avalanche breakdowns take place in the neighbourhood of PN junction local defects at sufficiently high reverse voltages. These breakdowns give rise to microplasma noise which is often characterized by rectangular current impulses whose inception time and duration time are random. The effective cross-section of the microplasma region being rather small, the current density may achieve an extremely high value, which in turn can result in local heating of the micro-region and, consequently, the junction destruction. The present paper deals with the effect of the temperature on statistical characterics of microplasma noise. This effect is intended to be used for the local defect temperature determination based on these characteristic measurement results.
