Pb1−xSnxTe (05⩽x⩽0.25) and PbSe0.08Te0.92 layers doped with In,Cd, T1, As, and Bi were grown by the LPE method. The doping characteristics and electrical properties of the epilayers were studied by direct Hall and resistivity measurements. The results are discussed in view of the existing theoretical models.
