From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2016
In our prior research we investigated room-temperature radiation detectors (CZT, CMT, CdMgTe, CTS, among other compound semiconductors) for point defects related to different dopants and impurities. In this talk we will report on our most recent research on newly grown CZT crystals doped with In, In+Al, In+Ni, and In+Sn. The main focus will be on the study of dopant-induced point defects using deep-level current transient spectroscopy (i-DLTS). In addition the performance, product, gamma-ray spectral response and internal electric field of the detectors were measured and correlated with the dopant-induced point defects and their concentrations. Characterization of the detectors was carried out using i-DLTS for the point defects, Pockels effect for the internal electric-field distribution, and -ray spectroscopy for the spectral properties.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
