Refractive indices and related properties of some potential mixed crystals
The high frequency refractive indices of some binary, ternary and quaternary mixed crystals have been evaluated from the knowledge of plasmon energy and the lowest gap energy of the crystals for their applications in heterojunctionled and solar cells. The Fermi energy screening factor correction has been applied to effect accuracy in prediction. The model has been used to study the temperature and pressure dependence of refractive index. The calculated value agrees with experiment (within a few percent) justifying the validity of the model.
