Cadmium Telluride Nuclear-Radiation Counter
A brief report is given of the development of cadmium telluride nuclear-radiation detectors with p-n junctions, prepared by the diffusion of indium into a p-type material. The working area of these counters was up to 35 mm2, their working voltage up to 20 V, and the reverse currents ranged from thousands to tenths of a microampere. The energy resolution for 5.15-MeV α particles was 6–8%. The thickness of the active region at a voltage of 10 V was about 10 μ.
