Paper Abstract

Hgl-x Cdx Te is a good candidate for signal transmission through fiber optics for it has an adjustable direct band gap (x ~ 0.7 for silica glass and x~ 0.4 for fluorine glass). Photovoltaic detectors can be made by implantation on a p-type substrate. However the physical nature of the junction is not yet clearly understood. We implanted various ions (Al, Xe, Kr) at different energies, (60 3 keV to 320 keV) and temperatures (15 K, 300 K) in p-type bulk Hg 0.3 Cd 0.7 Te (p~ 1.5 x 10 16/cm3). From E.B.I.C. and differential Hall measurements, we conclude that Hg inferstitials should be the most realistic candidates as doping defects.
