Transition metals (TM) doped ZnSe crystals were synthesized by vapor phase thermal diffusion method. The absorption spectra of TM2+-doped ZnSe crystal were measured. First-principles calculations of the electronic structure and optical properties of TM2+: ZnSe were performed. The results demonstrate that when Zn is replaced by a TM atom, impurity bands (IB) are created in the bandgap and additional absorption peak appears in infrared region. The experimental absorption spectra match well with the calculated results, which is identified by electronic calculations to be caused by d-d transitions of TM2+ ions.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
