A comparative study of the electronic and optical properties of Mn-Bi-Te layered compounds was carried out using spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) over a photon energy range of 0.7–6.5 eV at room temperature and density functional theory (DFT)-based first-principle calculations within the general gradient approximation with Hubbard like correction (GGA+U) and allowance for a spin-orbital coupling. The total energies of the above compounds in ferromagnetic (FM) and antiferromagnetic (AFM) spin configurations are obtained by taking the long-range van der Waals interaction into account. The stability of the AFM state of MnBi2Te4 and MnBi4Te7 over the corresponding FM counterpart is disclosed. The SE-based and calculated dielectric functions are compared. It is shown that interband optical transitions in the accessed photon energy range mainly occur between Mn 3d + Te 5p states of the valence band and Bi 6p + Te 5p with a small admixture of Mn 3d states of the conduction band.
