Properties of thick evaporated layers of PbTe

C S Evans, J S Seeley

Journal de Physique, Colloque C4 No, 11-12, Pages C4-37 (1968)


The changes in the optical transparency of PbTe monolayers induced by post-evaporation heat treatment are described. The monolayers are typically a few microns in thickness and heat treatment reduces the carrier density from about 1018 (n-type) per cm3 to 1017 per cm3 : the source material is 1019 (ptype) per cm3. The process seems to involve the diffusion of O2 at a reaction rate equivalent to an energy of 0.83 eV.
