Abstract

Significant developments have occurred in the technology of room-temperature PbI2 nuclear sensors which lead to some improvements in the detection of high energy gamma-rays. Discussion of crystal growth, purification, monitoring purification, and detector processing are reviewed as they relate to device performance.
