Abstract

Single-crystal ingots of CdxZn1−x Te solid solutions are grown by the sublimation method. Samples with x = 0.95, 0.90, and 0.85 taken from the end portions of the ingots are chemically homogeneous and have p-type conductivity with a 300-K hole concentration below 1012 cm−3. Temperature-dependent electrical conductivity measurements are used to evaluate the ionization energies of electrically active centers.
