Paper Abstract

The compound Mercuric Bromoiodide (HgBrxI2-x) belongs to the HgI2-HgBr2 system. It is promising for the same applications as HgI2, that is as solid state X and (gamma) detector, operating at room temperature since it exhibits a number of properties which are necessary for such applications, i.e. large atomic number, large band gap (2.4 - 3.4 eV) and high resistivity. Using a Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope we made some investigations regarding topographical distribution of impurities or related defects. Analysis of chemical composition of HgBrxI2-x crystals were performed on a SEM model Phillips 515 equipped with Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis.
