Condensation of Injected Electrons and Holes in Germanium


We have demonstrated for the first time that the condensed phase of electrons and holes in germanium can be produced by carrier injection. Germanium devices at liquid-helium temperatures emit intense 708.5-meV recombination radiation characteristic of the condensed phase.
