Abstract Experiments carried out to fabricate HgxCd(1-x)Te by diffusing mercury into CdTe slices from the vapour, resulted in obtaining slices with a maximum value of x=0.004. Measurements on the diffusion of mercury into such slices, where 0≤x≤0.03, under saturated vapour pressure conditions, resulted in two component profiles, each profile giving two values of D. These results were similar to ones obtained earlier, indicating that the diffusion was rate-limiting. In addition, the diffusivities were found to be independent of x.
