The quaternary alloy single crystals of Hg1−x−yCdxMnyTe, which exhibit high purity and sufficient homogeneity, have been prepared by means of a modified zone melting method. The far-infrared interband, Γ8 → Γ8, and intraband magneto-absorptions have been studied in several specimens of the narrow gap region using optically pumped lasers. We assign these observed lines as the cyclotron resonance, the spin resonance, the combined resonance and some interband transitions.
