The infrared transmittances of PbTe-Pb0.8Sn0.2 Te superlattices prepared by the technique of a hot wall epitaxy were measured at 77 K and the fundamental absorption edges are compared with the theoretical calculations using Kronig-Penney model, taking into account the many valley structure and the non-parabolicity of the electronic state.
