    We have shown that external hydrostatic pressure leads to the creation of structural defects, mainly in the vicinity of the II-VI/GaAs interface in the CdTe/Cd[sub 1-x]Mg[sub x]Te heterostructures grown by the molecular beam epitaxy method on GaAs substrates. These defects propagating across the...
