Abstract

Synopsis Irradation of a CdTe single crystal or biasing a CdTe- p-n junction in the forward direction lead to a luminescence with a maximum at about 8880 Å. From transmission measurements and measurements of the long wave limit of the photo emf. of a CdTe- p-n junction as a function of the temperature, the shift of the band edge was seen to vary from 2.34 × 10 −4 eV/°K at 77°K to 5.44 × 10 −4 eV/°K at 800°K.
