The use of different experimental methods (reflectivity, absorption, photoconductivity and cathodoluminescence) allowed us to confirm the existence of the deep donor-like state of iron and present allocation and properties of the iron states in Cd1-yFexTe (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.05) at 300 K and 77 K in the forbidden gap energy range. It was concluded that the increase in width of the forbidden gap with the change of temperature from 300 K to 77 K leads mainly to the rise of the energy distance between the donor-like iron state 5E and the bottom of the conduction band.
