The electrical and magnetic properties of mercury selenide single-crystals doped with iron are studied over the temperature range 80–400 K in magnetic fields of 0–8 kOe. The Fe distribution coefficient in HgSe is determined using the isotopic solution method. It is found that the Fe impurity in the mercury selenide lattice is electrically inactive. With growth in Fe concentration the paramagnetism of the specimens studied increases. The results of the magnetic susceptibility study are evaluated within the framework of crystalline field theory.
