Radiative Recombination in Cadmium Telluride Crystals

Part of the The Lebedev Physics Institute Series book series (LPIS)

Abstract

Investigations were made of the radiative recombination and reflection spectra of CdTe crystals with different compositions. The measurements were carried out in the temperature range 4.2–300°K at wavelengths of 0.7–4.0 μ. The reflection spectra were used to calculate the free-exciton absorption and luminescence spectra. A comparison of the calculated results with the measured luminescence spectra revealed self-reversal of the free-exciton luminescence line. An analysis of the photoluminescence spectra as a function of the impurity — defect composition of thesamples made it possible to interpret the majority of the observed luminescence lines and bands. A study was made of the strength of the electron — phonon interaction in optical transitions as a function of the nature of the centers involved. The profiles of the luminescence bands resulting from the recombination at deep levels were explained.
