The electronic band structure parameters have been studied in Pb1−xSn x Te by means of electroreflectance (ER) in the absorbing region and of Faraday rotation in the infra-red transmitting region. Interference effects in Faraday rotation have been investigated theoretically in thin-film samples.

Электроотражение и вращение Фарадея в Pb1−xSn x Te


Исследуются параметры электронной зонной структуры в Pb1−xSn x Te с помощью электроотражения в области поглощения и вращения Фарадея в инфракрасной области. В тонких пленках теоретически изучаются интерференционные эффекты при вращении Фарадея.


Sono stati studiati i parametri della struttura elettronica a bande nel Pb1−xSn x Te per mezzo dell’elettroriflettanza (ER) nella regione di assorbimento e della rotazione di Faraday nella regione di trasparenza nell’infrarosso. Gli effetti di interferenza nella rotazione di Faraday sono stati studiati teoricamente in campioni di film sottili.
