Abstract

High quality CdTe/Cd1-xMnxTe quantum well structures can be routinely grown in the authors' laboratory by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). At temperatures of ∼ 2 K these structures have optical linewidths ≲ 3 meV for quantum well widths ≲ 20 Å. The present paper shows how information on the nature and extent of the interface roughness in such systems can be deduced from studies of the optical linewidths and Stokes' shifts.
