Abstract

We present results of 1/f noise measurements at low frequency (10(-3) < f < 10 Hz) and at low temperatures (1 K < T < 20 K) in single crystals of Si doped with P and B. The doping concentration n is close to the critical composition n, of the metal-insulator transition (MIT). We observed that the noise which originates from the universal conductance fluctuation, can be suppressed effectively by an electric field of moderate magnitude at T < 20 K. Near the critical region of MIT (n approximate to n(c)) the suppression is extremely large. We show that this effect can originate by dephasing arising from an electric field in presence of electron-electron interaction.
