Abstract. The electrical field dependencies of current I and its variation under phonon pulses - Iph, were measured in -doped GaAs with n = 5*1011 nm-2. It was shown that if E< 1 V/cm and T = 2 K, E/I, and E/Iph linearly increase with E, and while the change in the first value was less than 5%, the second one increased by more than 3 times. The proposed explanation of experimental results is based on the nearness of the studied structure to a metal-insulator transition.
