ABSTRACT
Highly mismatched group II-O[sub x]-VI[sub 1-x] alloys have been synthesized by oxygen implantation into Cd[sub l-y]Mn[sub y]Te crystals. In crystals with y>0.02, incorporation of O causes a large decrease in the band gap. The band gap reduction increases with y; the largest value observed is 190 meV in O-implanted Cd[sub 0.38]Mn[sub 0.62]Te. This striking behavior is consistent with the band anticrossing model which predicts that repulsive interaction between localized states of O and the extended states of the conduction band causes the band gap reduction. These large, O-induced effects provide a unique opportunity by which to control the optical and electronic properties in II-VI alloys.
