Abstract

While crystal growth and physical phenomena in the MnxCd-xTe system have been extensively investigated, little is known about the substitution of other transition metals in cadmium telluride. We have examined the substitution of Fe, Co, and Ni for Cd in CdTe. We find that Co and Ni have very low solubilities in CdTe less than a percent while Fe can be substituted to ≈ 10%. Magnetic susceptibility shows that the iron sites couple antiferromagnetically and gives evidence for clustering at higher Fe concentrations. The lattice constant is observed to decrease with increasing iron concentration, behavior similar to that observed in MnxCd1-xTe. Manganese cadmium tellurides have shown interesting magneto-optical properties. Investigations of this newly formed analog. FexCd1-xTe, may reveal interesting behavior in this system as well.
