Abstract
It is clarified that the absolute instability corresponding to the terahertz oscillation occurs at the high electron-hole plasma density in InSb. The computer analysis of the dispersion equation for longitudinal waves in the solid state plasma in InSb is performed for arbitrary orientations of the carrier drift velocity relative to the external magnetic field. The oscillation frequencies of terahertz waves are increased with the electron-hole plasma density, the external magnetic field and the angle θ. (θ is an angle between the carrier drift velocity and the external magnetic field) The maximum frequency of the terahertz waves is 5.0 THz at the electron-hole density of 1 X 1019 cm-3 and the transverse magnetic field of 20 kG. In this case the wavelength λ is 16 nm and the phase velocity up is 0.8 X 107 cm/sec.
