Abstract:

Two major areas are under study epitaxial film growth p of Hg1- XCdxTeMCT and diffusion in MCT. The objective of the film growth study is to evaluate mechanisms of the film growth process and to provide samples for property and device study in MCT. The objectives of the diffusion studies are to resolve inconsistencies in the literature regarding this important practical phenomenonl and to elucidate the dominant defects present in this ternary compound. A brief description of current activity and progress is given.
