Strain Modification of Alloy Fluctuations in CdTe/(Cd,MnTe) Superlattice Systems

  • S. A. Jackson (a1) and C. R. McIntyre (a2)

Abstract

We have calculated the effect of strains on the valence band offset and bandgap in the CdTe/(Cd,Mn)Te superlattice system for various growth directions and alloy compositions. We find that strain can modify the effect of alloy fluctuations on band offset and bandgap. The consequences of this for the formation of interface states will be discussed.
