Abstract

The optical and electrical properties of MnTe films were investigated to ascertain the feasibility of their use in solar cell applications. Three ¡-MnTe thin films with different composition, i.e., Mn-47.9 at% Te, Mn-49.2 at% Te, and Mn-50.4 at% Te, were prepared using RF magnetron sputtering. All the films demonstrated a high light absorption coefficient (0.2
