Abstract

Semi-insulating Cd 0.9 Mn 0.1 Te: In crystals are grown by vertical Bridgman method. The segregation coefficient of Mn in CdTe is nearly 1 so that all the CdMnTe samples obtained from one ingot have nearly a same Mn composition. Also sulfur-based passivation effectively prevent the formation of Te-oxide but large amount of Mn exist as a MnO on the CdMnTe surface. The resistivity of CdMnTe samples are low 10 10 Ω cm and well resolved 241 Am gamma peaks are seen for all detectors. The difference in spectral response can be attributed to the effect of excess Te and conductivity change due to over-compensation induced by indium segregation in CdMnTe. The mobility-lifetime products evaluated from the dependence of peak location on the bias voltage are 1 × 10 -3 cm 2 V . The higher mobility-lifetime products in our CdMnTe crystals than other previous reports are assumed due to minimization of impurity contents in MnTe by several zone refining process.
