Influence of parameters of a quantum well and electronic polarizability spatial dispersion on the dependence of two-dimensional plasmon energy on wave vector in narrow-gap CdHgTe quantum wells (band gap 35 meV) is studied theoretically. It is shown that at energies above 20 meV, the dispersion law of two-dimensional plasmons is close to linear. Taking into account the finite width of the quantum well decreases the plasmon phase velocity. This effect increases with an increase in the fraction of cadmium in the QW while maintaining the band gap and with a decrease in the concentration of charge carriers in it. Keywords: two-dimensional plasmon, narrow-gap HgTe.
