Effective distribution coefficient of Te in ZnAs2

  • 26 Accesses


Te-doped ZnAs2 crystals were prepared by vertical Bridgman growth. The effective distribution coefficient of Te in a ZnAs2 crystal with a nominal Te content of 3.7 × 10-4 wt % Te grown at a solidification rate of 0.5 mm/h was determined to be 0.9. Te was shown to act as a donor impurity in ZnAs2.
