Title: Effect of microwave treatment on the luminescence properties of CdS and CdTe:Cl Single Crystals

The effect of microwave radiation on the luminescence properties of CdS and CdTe:Cl single crystals is studied. It is established that the exposure of these semiconductors to short-term (≤30 s) microwave radiation substantially modifies their impurity and defect structure. The mechanisms of transformation of the defect subsystem of II–VI single crystals upon microwave treatment are discussed. It is shown that the experimentally observed changes are defined by the nonthermal effects of microwave radiation at a power density of 7.5 W cm{sup –2}; at 90 W cm{sup –2}, nonthermal effects are prevailing.
