The parallel and transverse components of diffusion constants of electrons in CdTe have been computed for fields of 30, 40, and 50 kV/cm using the Monte Carlo method. Results are presented for the velocity autocorrelation function and for the ac diffusion constants for two models of energy band structure and scattering constants, used earlier in the literature. The diffusion constants as obtained from the two models are significantly different, but none are in agreement with the available experimental results.
