The high electric field properties of GaAs have been investigated using a uniaxial stress apparatus, developed at the University of Surrey, and the hydrostatic pressure equipment at STL. An initial increase of the Gunn effect threshold field with pressure was observed, in contrast to previous measurements which are explained qualitatively in terms of pressure effects on non-ohmic contacts. Comparison of the results with Monte-Carlo calculations suggests that it may be incorrect to ignore the L1c minima as in previous analyses.
