Abstract

We measured the dependence of the energy gap in Bridgman-grown Cd 1-x Mnx Te crystals, 0≤x≤0.25, on the Mn mole fraction and temperatures from 40 to 300 K. We determined the Mn mole fraction and energy gap, respectively, from electron probe microanalysis and near-infrared Fourier-transform infrared transmission spectra. The energy gap increased linearly with an increase in the Mn content in the crystal and with a decrease in temperature. We formulated new equations from these experimental results, wherein we expressed the energy gap as a function of Mn mole fraction and temperature. Also, we compare our findings with published results.
