    Since the crystallographic polarity of the CdTe(111) buffer layer can change the growth conditions of HgCdTe, HgMnTe, and HgZnTe, it is important to know the polarity of the terminating of the CdTe(111)||GaAs(100) substrates. It is especially important since this composite substrate appears as...
