The introduction of phosphorus and arsenic dopants into bulk Cd1−xMnx Te crystals grown by the Bridgman-Stockbarger technique has been studieA-with respect to the resulting optical properties. Samples with a Mn composition in the range 0.10 < x < 0.30, both as-grown and annealed, were investigated. A combination of room temperature transmittance and reflectance measurements over the spectral range from the ultraviolet to the far infrared has been used to gain information concerning the structural quality of the samples. Low temperature photoluminescence measurements (1.6−5 K) were used to determine optical quality and excitonic energies.
