Abstract : Two photodetection studies of the narrow gap IV-VI alloy semiconductors were made. In the first study, the photoconductive response of Pb(0.9) Sn(0.1) Se and Pb(0.68) Sn(0.32) Se were investigated. In the second study, single heterojunction Pb(1-x) Sn(x)Te diodes fabricated by sequential depositions of p type Pb(0.86) Sn(0.32)Te and n type Pb(0.8) Sn(0.2)Te were studied. Results are discussed.
