We report on growth by molecular beam epitaxy of thick layers of MnTe with zinc blende structure. Films as thick as 5.6 µm were obtained. Char­acterization by X-ray diffraction proved their good structural quality. We determined the lattice constant and its temperature dependence. Broad lu­minescence due to internal Mn2+- transitions was observed. It showed an unexpected temperature dependence.
