Abstract

Heterojunctions in then-CdTe-p-ZnTe system were prepared via solid-state substitutions, and their properties were studied. Under small forward bias, the current-voltage characteristics of the heterojunctions, both in the dark and under illumination, are dominated by the generation-recombination processes in the spacecharge region. The spectral response of the heterojunctions extends from the band gap of CdTe to that of ZnTe.
