A step-like emission is observed for CdTe/CdMnTe structures δ-doped with In. The new photoluminescence cannot be explained by neither the Raman process nor by the "ordinary" hot photoluminescence. We propose that magnetic interactions are responsible for the new photoluminescence appearing due to a dramatic increase in a thermalization time of hot excitons.
