Liquid phase epitaxy(LPE) of (Hg,Cd)Te thick films from large tellurium-rich solutions was used to produce very large quantities of high quality films used for the fabrication of focal plane arrays. The composition uniformity is found to be ix=±O.OO1 for x=O.223 over an area ranging from 43cm2 to 54cm2. The reproducibility for 2OO growth runs, <8000cm2, is x=0.226±0.0033 or equivalently Xco9.8Si44Pm. The electrical quality of the material for diodes is evaluated by growing n-type films with an indium back-doping of —5x1014cm3. The carrier concentratio:ri is reproducible and in good agreement with the indium doping level. The average carrier concentration at 77K is 5.3±2.4x10'4cm3 with a mobility of 13 1±0.31x105cm2/V sec. Th.e minority carrier lifetime for the n-type films is Auger limited with an average value of 68±2.0isec.
