We report on a reversible avalanche breakdown due to free-carrier multiplication caused by cross band gap impact ionization in a GaAs microcrystal. The n GaAs microcrystal (length 1 µm, diameter 1 µm) was embedded between n+ GaAs layers serving as electric contacts. We guided an electric pulse to the sample and determined, from the reflected and transmitted pulse, the I(V) characteristic. The ...
