Abstract : The energy and momentum relaxation of conduction electrons by optical phonons in InSb is studied. The energy band structure calculated by Kane is used. For simplicity, the drifted Maxwellian approach is used and its form for an arbitrary band structure presented. No intrinsic breakdown is obtained. On the contrary, the model gives a voltage-controlled differential negative mobility for high fields. (Author)
