The effect of an applied, time-varying voltage on the plastic behavior of (Hg,Cd)Te has been investigated. We observe that both positive and negative voltages suppress plasticity, with the negative voltage being more effective. The influence of this voltage polarity is strain dependent and provides information on the charge of the mobile dislocations.
