The Esaki effect takes advantage of the fact that a bipolar transistor has a PN junction between its collector and emitter. When connected in reverse biased at 12V the PN junction breaks down, (like a zener doide) and dumps the charge stored in the cap. Thereby producing a flash. This will work with virtually any general bipolar NPN transistor.
