Title: A Collective Impact Ionization Theory of Lock-On

Abstract

PhotoConductive semiconductor switches (PCSS's), such as optically-triggered GaAs switches, have been developed for a variety of applications. Such switches exhibit unique properties associated with lock-on, a phenomenon associated with bistable switching. In this paper lock-on is explained in terms of collective impact ionization.
