Abstract

Several analytical techniques have been used in the study of the homogeneity of Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) single crystals grown by the vertical high pressure Bridgman (VHPB) method. The presence of black inclusions and tubular hollow pipes has been observed by a few methods, such as photoluminescence (PL), infrared (IR) transmission microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The crystals investigated were grown commercially in the USA, at the Institute of Single Crystals in Kharkov, Ukraine, and at the Institute of Solid State Physics, Moscow, Russia. We discuss the homogeneity of the various CZT crystals based on the results from these measurement techniques.
