Abstract

The optical properties of Ag Ga Te 2 chalcopyrite semiconductor are studied by optical absorption, spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE), and thermoreflectance (TR) spectroscopy. Optical absorption spectra suggest that Ag Ga Te 2 is a direct-gap semiconductor having a bandgap of 1.2 eV at T = 300 K . The pseudodielectric-function spectra of Ag Ga Te 2 are determined by SE in the range between E = 1.2 and 5.2 eV for both states of polarization. These spectra reveal distinct structures at energies of the critical points in the Brillouin zone. The TR spectra are also measured in the E = 1.0 5.3 eV ranges at T = 20 K 300 K . The spin–orbit and crystal-field splitting parameters of Ag Ga Te 2 are determined to be Δ so = 0.70 eV and Δ cr = 0.23 eV , respectively.
