Abstract

Results are presented on the assessment, using a variety of techniques, of methyl, tertiary-butyl, telluride as a potential precursor for the growth of CdTe, HgTe and (Hg,Cd)Te by metal-organic vapour-phase epitaxy (MOVPE). It is concluded that, despite its low decomposition temperature and the successful growth of HgTe, MeTeBut is a very poor tellurium precursor. It is probable that all unsymmetrical tellurium alkyls containing a methyl group will also be poor tellurium precursors. Crown Copyright (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
