Presents both basic and applied aspects of diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS), a new and exciting area of semiconductor physics. The term DMS applies generally to semiconductors in which a fraction of the constituent ions are replaced by magnetic ions. These materials have unique properties which enhance their potential for use in a wide range of opto-electronic devices. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR3.2.2 Compositional Dependence of Energy Gaps The IV-VI semiconductor compounds have their extrema of the ... The replacement of the IV group element by Mn or Eu leads to a significant change of the energy gap in the IV-VI DMS. ... Similar to PbTe, PbMnTe also shows both a direct and an indirect transition.
