Basic scientific achievements:
1. For the first time it has been calculated the electronic structure of the ideal and defective semiconductors Cd(Pb)Te, Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe and GaS in the framework of DFT by the pseudopotential method, by use of LSDA in the Atomistix ToolKit program, as well as of the semiconductors GaS, GaSe, InSe with anion, cation vacancy or impurity on the base of Green function theory, by the Bond Orbital and LCAO methods. The density of states, total energy, magnetic moments, number of electrons, position of Fermi level, defect formation and threshold energies were defined.
2. It has been defined, that defects in investigated semiconductors change the band gap, form local levels in the band gap and valence band, displace Fermi level, as well as form magnetic moments near the defects, ferromagnetic phase change to antiferromagnetic and vice versa in semimagnetic semiconductors.
3. It has been established that at compensation of vacancies by the atom of the element in the same subgroup with the same tetrahedral coordination the ionic radius of which is less than the ionic radius of the replaced atom, the local levels formed by defects completely disappear. Using this mechanism it is possible to restore the initial parameters of the crystal. The compensation by the atom of differ coordination and bigger ionic radius, there form addition local levels.
4. The effect of γ-irradiation on crystal structure, surface morphology, electrophysical, optical and photoelectric properties of Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe epitaxial films is studied depending on the sample thickness, Mn atoms concentration and irradiation dose. Epitaxial films were obtained on a mica, glass substrates and BaF2 monocrystalline films in a vacuum (1÷2)10-4Pa by the Molecular Beams Condensation method. It is determined the optimal conditions to obtain of epitaxial films with perfect structure and a clean, smooth surface by using of additional Te source.
5. It was determined that at a substrate temperature of Tsub=300 K, the films obtained on glass substrates have polycrystalline and amorphous structure, on mica substrates only polycrystalline structure. At the substrate temperature of Tsub=670К, there were grown epitaxial films with a cubic structure (zinc blende) in the crystalline plane of (111).
6. It has been established changes in x-ray diffractometer and AFM spectra after γ-irradiation (E=1.17MeV, E=1.33MeV) of Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe epitaxial films of dozes Dγ≤25kQr. It is observed that the intensities of some reflexes are reduced in the x-ray spectra, and the particle size reduce in the AFM spectra. Above the 25kGy dose deterioration of surface morphology occurs.
7. The significant changes, observed in the VAC and photoconductivity spectra of Cd1-xMnxTe epitaxial films after irradiation by γ-quanta at doses Dγ ≤25кGy at Tsub=300K and Pb1-xMnxTe epitaxial films by electron fluxes of Ф≤7·1017-2 at nitrogen temperature make it possible to create detectors of ionizing irradiation on their basis.
8. It has been established that irradiation of epitaxial films change the optical parameters, i.e. the edge of intrinsic absorption is shifted, which affects the band gap. Thus, by changing both the manganese concentration and the irradiation dose, it is possible to control the properties of the samples.
9. The possibilities of creating photosensitive heterojunctions based on n-CdTe /р-Cd1-xMnxTe and n-Pb1-xMnxТe/p-PbТe1-yy epitaxial films are determined, which can be used as photoconverters, photodetectors and detectors of ionizing radiation.
10. It has been established that in size-quantized Pb1-xMnxTe films, the angle of the interband Faraday rotation (AIFR) increases with increasing of band gap.
11. It is determined that AIFR in size-quantized Pb1-xMnxTe films for two specific orientations of crystalline directions with respect to the film surface differ for several orders of magnitude and differ in sign.
12. It was determined that the AIFR in size-quantized Pb1-xMnxTe films for two specific orientations of the crystal directions with respect to the film surface differ by several orders of magnitude and are different in sign.
13. It has been shown that in semimagnetic semiconductors Cd1-xMnxTe the AIFR linearly depends on the concentration of paramagnetic ions and a very small amount of manganese ions strongly affects the value of the AIFR.

Practical significance:
• control of the structure of energy bands of Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe chalcogenides using the Mn concentration, as well as GaS, GaSe, InSe using impurities;
• control of electrical conductivity and photoconductivity, the type of conductivity, magnetic properties and the band gap of Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe crystals by irradiation with ionizing radiation;
• using the data of the electronic structure and photoelectric properties, it is possible to create solar cells, photodetectors and detectors of ionizing radiation of high sensitivity based on epitaxial Cd(Pb)1-xMnxTe films and structures based on them.
