Electrical and magnetic properties of mercury selenide doped with nickel and chromium

  • 41 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


The electrical properties of mercury selenide single-crystals doped with nickel and chromium are studied over the temperature range 80–400 K in magnetic fields of 0–8 kOe. It is established that in the mercury selenide lattice the impurity Ni is electrically and magnetically inactive. With growth in Cr concentration the paramagnetism of mercury selenide specimens increases. Results of a study of magnetic susceptibility are compared to theoretical calculations for a point model and a point model with consideration of covalence effects.
