Local atomic arrangement in evaporated amorphous Cd-As and Zn-P films was investigated by extended X-ray absorption fine structure. Results of modelling indicate that bonds between atoms of the same kind occur for both (Cd,Zn)-rich and (As,P)-rich compositional regions. This specific chemical ordering, much alike to that in the corresponding crystalline polymorphs, appears to play a predominant role in determining of the local structures in these materials.
