Paper Abstract

Single-crystal films up to 1 inch diameter of mercury cadmium telluride have been grown on mica substrates using a combination of two techniques. Initially, a film of CdTe was deposited on the substrate in a Hot Wall Epitaxial furnace. In a subsequent step the CdTe film is converted to HgCdTe by an evaporation and diffusion of HgTe at constant tempera-ture. The films were very uniform and had device quality electrical properties. Attempts to produce similar films on 2-inch diameter sapphire substrates resulted in polycrystalline growth.
