SnTe Phase Transition in Strained Superlattices PbTe/SnTe
Languages of publication
An anomaly of the in-plane conductivity is observed in the superlattices PbTe/SnTe on (001)KCl in the temperature region of 60-130 K. The anomaly is caused by a structural phase transition in SnTe layer and as a result, the transition induced formation of defects. These defects are additional scattering centres which decrease the superlattice conductivity.
