The X-ray Debye temperature of CdTe

  • K. Zubík

The X-ray Debye temperature of CdTe has been measured by diffraction on single crystal and on powder samples. From measurements in the temperature range 8 to 335 ‡C the average values 140±3 K and 145±8 K were determined for single crystal and powder samples respectively. The value 141±5 K was obtained from angular measurements on powder samples at room temperature.
