Abstract: Transition rates for impact ionisation initiated by a) a conduction electron, b) a light hole, and c) double impact ionisation by a conduction electron are calculated using time-dependent perturbation theory. The relative yields of secondary carriers produced by these processes, taking into account the relative numbers of primary carriers created and the loss of light holes by various transitions from the heavy hole band, are evaluated. It is shown that while process b) is a major contributor to the quantum y…
