abstract

  • Measurements of transverse magnetoresistance and Hall effect have been made at 4.2 °K on various In2Se3-doped and In2Te3-doped InAs polycrystalline specimens with magnetic fields up to 3.2 Wb/m2. An analysis of the results gives values of electron concentrations n0 and n1 and mobilities μ0 and μ1 for both the (000) and [Formula: see text] conduction-band minima. From the values of n0 and n1, the energy separation of the (000) and [Formula: see text] minima E01 of pure InAs has been determined to be 0.70 + 0.02 eV and is found to decrease with increasing impurity content, the rate of reduction being 0.13 ± 0.02 eV/at.% selenium and 0.17 ± 0.03 eV/at.% tellurium. Room-temperature measurements of electroreflectance and infrared absorption have also been made, and these indicate that the variation in E01 is due to the movement of the (000) conduction-band minimum relative to the valence band.
