Abstract:This paper reports photoluminescence (PL) and magneto-PL study of CdZnTe single crystal grown by Bridgman method. Magneto-PL measurements on two CdZnTe samples in the sample crystal were realized at low temperature with sufficiently high spectral resolution and signal-to-noise ratio. PL spectra reveal that the Te inclusions near the CdZnTe surface affects obviously the PL processes energetically below 1.5 eV. Further analysis with curve-fitting process shows that (1) stress distribution exists inside the CdZnTe sample without Te inclusions, and the stress causes the splitting of the heavy-and light-hole subband. (2) The 1.57-eV PL feature originates from the shallow-donor to valence-band recombination.
