IC-VI superlattices, recently grown by molecular beam epitaxy, exhibit far more diverse characteristics than the conventional GaAs-AlxGa1_xAs heterostructures, in particular because of the zero-gap band strcuture of some binary and ternary mercury compounds. The superlattices band Structure can be calculated as a function of the layers thicknesses and the temperature, and the calculations are confirmed by optical and magneto--optical experiments in the case of HgTe-CdTe saperlattices. Finally, these new systems present interesting potential applications as infrared materials.
