Abstract Recent advancements in IV–VI growth techniques have led to a renewed interest in using Pb$_{1−x }$Sn$_{ x }$Se for mid infrared (mid-IR) detector fabrication. There is now a greater need for an in-depth theoretical understanding of the potential competitiveness of these material systems with Hg$_{1−x }$Cd$_{ x }$Te (MCT) especially in regards to material defects and device performance. Herein, we calculate the shielding effects of the dielectric constant by considering the scattering of electrons due to ionized impurities and small charged dislocations. The higher dielectric constant in IV–VI materials, nearly ten times greater than that of MCT, is shown to more effectively screen out the influence of impurities.
