n-type GaSb has been prepared by metal-organic chemical vapour deposition with tellurium donors using diethyltelluride as the dopant precursor. The maximum carrier concentration achieved was 1.7 × 1018 cm−3, as measured by van der Pauw–Hall effect measurements, for an atomic tellurium concentration of 1.8 × 1019 cm−3. The apparent low activation of tellurium donors is explained by a model that considers the effect of electrons occupying both the Γ and L bands in GaSb due to the small energy difference between the Γ and L conduction band minima. The model also accounts for the apparent increase in the carrier concentration determined by van der Pauw–Hall effect measurements at cryogenic temperatures.
