The Material that Exhibits Transferred Eectron Effect is

By Himanshu Bajpai|Updated : July 25th, 2022

Choose the right answer to the question, the material that exhibits the transferred electron effect is from the following options and a detailed explanation.

  1. Zener diode
  2. Gunn diode
  3. Avalanche photodiode
  4. IMPATT

Answer - 2. Gunn diode

Gunn diode exhibits a transferred electron effect.

Solution

The detailed solution to the question, the material that exhibits the transferred electron effect, is provided here. 

GaAs, the material used in Gunn diodes, have negative differential mobility, meaning that the carrier velocity decreases as the electric field increases. This phenomenon is known as the transferred electron effect.
