Abstract

X-ray-absorption fine-structure experiments at different temperatures in ZnSexTe1-x (x=0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.55, 0.81, 0.93, 0.99, and 1.0) have been performed in order to obtain information about the structural relaxation and disorder effects occurring in the alloys. First and second neighbor distance distributions have been characterized at the Se and Zn K edges, using multiple-edge and multiple-scattering data analysis. The first neighbor distance distribution was found to be bimodal. The static disorder associated with the Zn-Te distance variance did not depend appreciably on composition. On the other hand, the static disorder associated with the Zn-Se distance increased as the Se content diminished. Using the bonding angle information provided by our experiments the point of view of the anion has been related to that of the cation. The resulting structural model indicates that Zn tetrahedra surrounding the anions remain essentially undistorted, but forced to tilt from their ideal zincblende orientation to accommodate the minority element. The main origin of structural disorder is suggested. (C) 2004 American Institute of Physics.
