The nonequilibrium phonon flow drags the electrons, and depending upon experimental conditions manifests itself in the acoustoelectric current, acoustomagnetic field or acoustoelectric field. The results of these phenomena in Sn, Al, Ga, Ag measured with SQUID technique are discussed.
In the two-dimensional (2D) case the phonon drag is studied on the interface of bicrystals and on the cleavage (111) surface of Ge and on the inversion layer on (111) (100) planes of Si. In all these cases the phonon drag is about two orders of magnitude larger than in metals with the same charge density. This is due to the drag of surface electrons by nonequilibrium phonon of the whole specimen.
The Kohn resonance of phonons with Fermi surface and topological transitions on Fermi surface of 2D electrons produced sharp singularities of phonon drag effect in 2D cases.
