ABSTRACT
We report details of the successful growth by molecular beam epitaxy of superlattices containing alternating layers of Hg1-xMnxTe and HgTe. These structures are the first superlattices containing layers of a mercury-based dilute magnetic semiconductor (Hg1-xMnxTe ) to be grown by any thin-film technique. The optical and electrical properties of these new magnetic multilayers are discussed.
