Influence of Structural Parameters to Engineer the Band Gaps in Ternary Pnictide Semiconductors - Theory as a Tool
The band gap anomaly exhibited by ABC2 : A = Cd; B = Si,Ge,Sn; C = P,As pnictides with respect to their binary analogs GaP, Ga0.5In0.5P, InP, GaAs, Ga0.5In0.5As, InAs is studied using Tight Binding Linear Muffin Tin Orbital (TBLMTO) method as an investigating theoretical tool. The influence of the structural parameters, η and u are analyzed to enable one to tune energy gap to make tailor made compounds.
