Abstract

We have used the ab-initio full potential LMTO method to model native defects and chlorine-impurity-related defects in ZnSe and ZnxMg1−xSe. Our results show that there is a strong tendency for formation of a defect complex between a chlorine impurity at the Se site and a vacancy at the neighboring Zn site. The formation energies of this complex and other chlorine related defects decrease in the presence of magnesium. However, the maximum achievable electron concentration in the presence of magnesium is lower because of the increase in the band gap.
