Abstract

The band structure of AlSb, GaSb, ZnTe and CdTe is calculated using the empirical pseudopotential method (EPM) coupled with spin-orbit (SO) splitting. We applied our empirical model of bulk modulus with SO effect. It has been noticed that SO has a crucial effect on the band structure of these compounds but does not influence the structural phase transition. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental data.
