Based on our analysis of the results of measurements of elastic deformation in CdxHg1−xTe/CdTe heterostructures it is shown that the degree of relaxation of the crystal lattice for Cd0.2Hg0.8Te films 1 µm thick with a working temperature of 273 K is 0.8766, which supports the idea of almost full relaxation of the mismatch stress for such thicknesses of A2B6 films.
