Effect of isomorphic atom substitution on the lattice parameters and the optical absorption edge of TlGaSe2-TlInSe2 mixed crystals

Gasanly, N. M.
The variation of lattice parameters of TlGaSe2-TlInSe2 mixed crystals with composition have been investigated by using of X-ray diffraction technique. For the mixed crystals studied, a structural phase transition (monoclinic to tetragonal) due to atom substitution is observed when the sum of the tetrahedral covalent radii of the Ga(In) and the Se atoms in Ga(In)Se-4 tetrahedra reaches a critical value of about 0.254 nm. From transmission and reflection measurements, the compositional dependence of the indirect energy band gap was revealed.
