27 August 2010 Thermographic analysis of the growth of Cd1-xZnxTe single crystals
Author Affiliations +
Bulk Cd1-xZnxTe (0<x<0.1) single crystals for gamma-ray detectors are grown mainly from nearstoichiometric melts. We discuss the influence of the thermal pre-history of the melts (superheating, thermo-cycling, and cooling rate) on various physical properties based on our thermographic analyses, electrical conductivity and viscosity measurements. Increasing the Zn content causes non-monotonic dependencies in the quality of the crystals' structure.
