20 January 2004 New progress in large-size CZT single-crystal growth for nuclear radiation detectors

Recent progress has been made in the development of the Modified Vertical Bridgman (MVB) technique for the growths of 3-inch diameter CZT crystals for fabrication of x-ray and gamma-ray detectors to operate at room temperature. 40% and 80% of the ingots have the single crystal volumes over 300cm3 and 100 cm3 per ingot respectively. Defects (such as Cd-vacancies, Indium dopants and purity) in CZT have been systematically studied. Detectors fabricated from these CZT ingots showed sharp energy resolution and good uniformity.
