Lead Tin Selenide (Pb1-xSnxSe)

  • Sadao Adachi


Since PbSe has the cubic rocksalt structure whereas SnSe has the orthorhombic structure, these compounds do not form a complete series of the pseudobinary solid solutions. It has been reported [1] that the rocksalt structure is obtained for 0≤x≤0.43. This alloy system is attractive for optoelectronic devices in the IR region (see, e.g., Ref. [2]).
