Abstract
The effect of strain on the valence band offset, bandgap and hole mass has been included in a calculation of the density of states arising from alloy fluctuations in the CdTe/(Cd,Mn)Te superlattice system for two growth directions. The consequences of this for the formation of interface states will be discussed.
