The empirical pseudopotential method coupled with the virtual crystal approximation is used to compute the electronic conduction band-edge charge densities at the Γ and X points for the ternary alloy CdxZn1-xS. We find that these charge densities are strongly dependent upon the stochiometric coefficient x. Such differences are crucial for a comprehensive understanding of interstitial impurities and the response of specific band states to perturbation in ternary alloy semiconductors.
