Abstract:

Mercury Cadmium Telluride MCT has a very large electron mobility and exhibits a non-ohmic behavior in relatively small electric fields. The goal of this project was to reach the understanding of electron transport properties of narrow band gap semiconductors, with emphasis on high-field behavior. Even though the primary material of interest was Mercury Cadmium Telluride MCT, but we also investigated Indium Antimonide. Researchers derived expressions for scattering rates for electrons in Mercury Cadmium Telluride which accounted for correct wave functions for narrow band gap materials, and performed the Monte- Carlo simulation of Hg0.205Cd0.795Te at 77K for different doping levels.
