KEYWORDS

Density of states, k.p method, II-VI semiconductors, band diagram

 

ABSTRACT

An investigation on the electronic properties of II-VI semiconductors by 40 band k.p method is presented. Findings on the band diagram and density of states are analyzed and the results are compared with previously reported theoretical and experimental works. The density of states calculations reveal that the valence band maxima are predominant contributed by the p-states. .and conduction band minima are mainly contributed by the s-states. Our calculations has been validated. through an accurate set of comparisons with available experimental results.
