Abstract

Several groups of narrow gap semiconductors have become particularly interesting in the fields of pure science and technology. Among these are some of the mercury, cadmium and lead compounds and some of the semimagnetic semiconductors. We report on the crystal growth of these materials and on the latest developments to meet the requirements of basic research and technology.
