Abstract
We consider a semiconductor superlattice biased into the regime of negative differential conductivity and driven by an additional GHz ac voltage, and find frequency-locked or quasiperiodic propagating field domains. With increasing driving frequency, the complex impedance exhibits strong variations of its amplitude and phase. An anomalous phase shift appears as a result of phase synchronization of the traveling domains.
