In recent months the successful p-doping of ZnSe and Zn(S,Se) using a nitrogen plasma source during growth by molecular beam epitaxy was one factor leading to the realization of diode lasers and light emitting diodes. This paper reports the results of the nitrogen doping of ZnTe using similar techniques. Doping levels exceeding the 1019 cm-3 range are reported along with electrical, optical, and microstructural characterization. The nitrogen-doped ZnTe is used to implement p-ZnTe/n-AISb diodes; the growth and characterization of these hetero-junction diodes are described.
