Do semiconductors inherently digitize the sound?

Abstract

What’s interesting to note is the random quantization of the pulse bursts (in a vacuum tube operated in ‘cold cathode’ mode). Does crystalline lattice semiconductor, operating a lower voltage due to direct surface contact and coupling, suffer similar quantization bursts of current flow?

High-voltage induced break-down of metal lattice domain / molecular surface tension in cold-cathode-stripped vacuum tube / electron valve. Under 20,000 Volts acceleration potential, electrons apparently strip from the cold (un-heated) metal cathode in sporadic bursts (not any patterned or smooth flow) and presumably cause gamma radiation upon high-velocity impact with internal metal and glass parts. What’s interesting to note is the random quantization of the pulse bursts. Does crystalline lattice semiconductor, operating a lower voltage due to direct surface contact and coupling, suffer similar quantization bursts of current flow? Do semiconductors inherently digitize the sound?
