We report here the results of Hgl-xZnxTe-CdTe strained-layer superlattices grown by MBE. This superlattice system has been chosen in order to investigate the effect of the strain in Type III and Type I superlattices. Hgl-xZnxTe-CdTe superlattices with different strain have been grown on CdTe(111)B/GaAs(100) and CdTe(100)/GaAs(100) substrates and characterized in situ by electron diffraction and ex situ by X-ray diffraction, infrared transmission and Hall measurements. The high quality of Hgl-xZnxTe-CdTe super-lattices is attested by the presence of satellite peaks in the X-ray spectra. The values of hole mobilities between 5x103 up to 2x104cm2v-ls-1 at T-23K along (111)B growth orientation and up to 4.9x104cm2v-1s-1 at 5K along (100) growth orientation are obtained for Type III superlattices whereas in Type I superlattices hole mobility is between 200-300cm2v-ls-1. Hg1-xZnxTe-CdTe superlattices with n-type character have also been obtained. A p- to n-type transition is observed when increasing HgZnTe layer thickness and/or decreasing CdTe layer thickness. Electron mobilities as high as 2.5x10-5cm2v-ls-1 have been reached.
