    Abstract

    The electron paramagnetic resonance spectrum from Mn2+ ions has been measured as a function of composition in six different II-VI semiconductor alloys. Despite the overall cubic structure of the alloys, there is a large axial crystal field interaction D due to the lowered symmetry in the alloy environment. The variation of D with composition is explained in terms of the superposition model except in the Hg-based alloys where it is correlated with the band structure variation with composition.
