Paper Abstract

The evolution of the radioluminescence (RL) spectra and spectral-kinetic characteristics of ZnSe100-xTex (0.01 <EQ x <EQ 0.96) crystals were studied at 77 K as a function of concentration of metallic Se added to the initial charge. The crystals were grown from the melt under argon pressure. The elemental composition of the samples was checked by x-ray luminescence and chemical analysis. It is shown that, depending upon the degree of doping with Te, different RL bands compete with each other. Thus, at 0.01 <EQ x <EQ 0.20 the short-wave luminescence should be probably treated as a self-activated luminescence band caused by recombination in the complex {V Zn- + D+}, where V is the Zn vacancy, a D-donor. The green-blue luminescence at 0.20 <EQ x <EQ 0.96 can be probably associated with Te clusters, while the formation of the `green' RL band is presumably due to Zn vacancies. The presence of the intense `red' band in ZnSe100-xTex samples, corresponding to the whole range of x, is considered as an indication of the fact that the luminescence center {V Zn- + Te0 + Zn+} comprises the isovalent dopant Te and the excess Zn.
