Abstract
Materials properties important to the design and performance of semiconducting gamma detectors, such as band gap, density, mobility, and crystal cell anisotropy, can depend on similar underlying physics. The resulting property correlations limit the number of design variable and the place effective bounds on the range of physical properties available to gamma-detection materials However, trend correlations can also limit the dependence of error in structure-property relationships and information gaps when considering new candidate materials. Trend analysis complements property estimation via data regression techniques, increasing the generality and certainty of information-based conclusions.
