Abstract : The work is concerned with the exploration of interaction of phonons (lattice vibrations) with charge carriers and effects closely related to these. The first major accomplishment was the discovery of the transmitted phonon drag in silicon npn structures. Subsequently, the transmitted phonon drag was used to explore a variety of scattering phenomena, all in silicon. During the first phase, the transmitted phonon drag was investigated using electrical input field of less than 10 volts/cm. Recently, main em phasis was put on 'high field' experiments in which electrons interacting with the phonons are accelerated to those drift velocities which are larger than the sound velocity in silicon.
