Optical Functions, Band Structure and Effective Masses of Electrons and Holes in InGaTe2


This paper has presented results of calculations of optical functions for e||c and e^c polarizations in 0 - 12 eV energy interval, band structure and effective masses of electrons and holes of ternary compound InGaTe2. Genesis of valence band was investigated by using group-theoretical analyses. The main features of spectra of optical functions, the parameters of transition and their theoretical nature were found out. Identified interband transitions are responsible for the main peaks in the optical functions. Calculated results are in good agreement with the known experimental data.
