Paper Abstract

An experimental comparison of Hgl_xCdxTe (CMT) and Hgl_xZnxTe (ZMT) alloys for 0 < x < 0.5 is carried out using electrochemistry and the electrolyte electroreflectance technique. The current versus potential characteristics of CMT and ZMT show clearly that the latter is the more chemically stable. This electrochemical behavior is correlated with a good definition of the electroreflectance spectra of ZMT in the El transition region. For the first time, the relation between El and the alloy composition of ZMT is determined in the whole composition range. The whole set of results tends to indicate that this new alloy is a promising material for infra red detection.
