The near-unity segregation coefficient of Se in a CdTe matrix ensures the compositional homogeneity, both axial- and radial, of the CdTeSe ternary compound, so making it a material of choice for room- temperature radiation detectors. In this study, we grew CdTeSe crystals by the Traveling Heater Method (THM), using Te as the solvent, and characterized the crystals by IR transmission microscopy, white-beam X-ray diffraction topography, and low-temperature photoluminescence. The total average concentration of the secondary phases obtained for the CdTeSe sample was about 7x104 cm-3 for crystals grown at two different laboratories. The best resistivity registered was 5x109 ohm-cm, and the estimated μτ product for the electrons was 3-4x10-3 cm2/V.
