The cathodoluminescence spectra for Cd1-xΜnxTe (0 < x ≤ 0.7) and Zn1-xMnxTe (0 < x ≤ 0.6) at room and liquid nitrogen temperature have been presented and discussed. Especially, the influence of increasing temper­ature and Mn content on cathodoluminescence spectra. The cathodolumi­nescence emission in Ζn1-xMnxTe (Cd1-xΜnxTe) centered at ≈ 1.95 eV (2.0 eV) and ≈ 2.2 eV (2.5 eV) are ascribed to Stokes-shifted 4Τ1(4G) → 6A1(6S) and 4Τ2(4G) → 6A1(6S) internal transitions of Mn+2 within the 3d5 state, respectively.
