Solid state recrystallization (SSR) techniques have been successfully applied to the Hg1-xMnxTe (x=0.125) system. The resulting Hg1-xMnxTe is as homogeneous as SSR grown Hg1-xCdxTe, based on microprobe, density, IR transmission, photoluminescence, and electroreflectance measurements. Transport measurements on these SSR Hg1-xMnxTe crystals show magnetic boil-off at low temperatures, indicating that these samples are comparable in quality to Bridgman grown Hg1-xMnxTe.
