Effect of dislocations on minority carrier lifetime in HgCdTe

  title={Effect of dislocations on minority carrier lifetime in HgCdTe},
  author={V. Raja Gopal and Sudha Gupta},
This article shows that the temperature dependence of minority carrier lifetime in mercury cadmium telluride samples of differing dislocation densities can be accounted well by including the dislocation contribution in addition to the contribution of well known radiative, auger, and Shockley–Read recombination mechanisms. The dislocation contribution to the minority carrier lifetime has been calculated on the basis of a recently proposed model [V. Gopal and S. Gupta, IEEE-ED 50, 1220 (2003)] by… CONTINUE READING
