On super high-vacuum installation (≤ 3—5x10-9 mm Hg), in quasi-equilibrium conditions by the method of "hot wall", in a uniform work cycle, photosensitive izoperiodical heterojunctions (HJ) Pb1-xSnxTe(In)/PbTe1-уSeу have been received. Polished plates (100) and quick-spalled sides of BaF2 (111) served as substrates. HJ components represent the ideally coordinated pair for the epitaxy in the structural relation. Volt-amper and spectral characteristics of HJ have been registred. The direct branch of VAC at small displacements submits of the exponential law J = J0exр(eU/bkТ). At 77 K the coefficient b changes in the interval 1,5—2, that is characteristic for the generation-recombination mechanism of the current flow through the region of the spatial charge. Maximal photosensitivity is observed at lmax= 11,6 micron.
