CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) is the third most well-regarded semiconductor
after silicon and gallium arsenide and is the material of choice for use in
infrared sensing and imaging. The reason for this is that MCT can be ‘tuned’ to
the desired IR wavelength by varying the cadmium concentration.
Mercury Cadmium Telluride: Growth, Properties and Applications provides both
an introduction for newcomers, and a comprehensive review of this fascinating
material. Part One discusses the history and current status of both bulk and
epitaxial growth techniques, Part Two is concerned with the wide range of
properties of MCT, and Part Three covers the various device types that have
been developed using MCT. Each chapter opens with some historical background
and theory before presenting current research. Coverage includes: Bulk growth
and properties of MCT and CdZnTe for MCT epitaxial growth Liquid phase epitaxy
(LPE) growth Metal-organic vapour phase epitaxy (MOVPE) Molecular beam epitaxy
(MBE) Alternative substrates Mechanical, thermal and optical properties of MCT
Defects, diffusion, doping and annealing Dry device processing Photoconductive
and photovoltaic detectors Avalanche photodiode detectors Room-temperature IR
