The Cd vacancy (VCd) and Te anti-site (TeCd) are two dominant defects in CdTe and CdZnTe alloys grown in Te-rich conditions. We examine the properties of these two intrinsic defects in Cd1 - x ZnxTe alloys with x < 0.5 using first-principles calculations. It is shown that Cd vacancies become progressively more favourable with increasing Zn content, in contrast with Te anti-sites, which show the opposite behaviour, explaining the trend towards p-type conductivity in Cd1 - x ZnxTe. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
