This paper discusses features of the electrophysical properties of semiconductors as applied to their use as an optical medium for IR systems. It is shown that reliable information on the absorption coefficient in the IR region can be obtained from a collection of parameters: the conductivity type, resistivity, charge-carrier mobility, and band gap.
