Abstract

The effects of arsenic and krypton implantations have been investigated in semi-insulating cadmium telluride crystals. Nearly 100 percent electrical activity was observed when As implants were performed at 300°C in samples subjected to a 24-hour 500°C cadmium vapor anneal prior to implantation. A jet thinning technique was utilized to prepare samples for transmission electron microscopy analysis and a number of micrographs obtained. In2Te3 and CdCl2 precipitates were identified in indium and chlorine compensated materials. Implantation damage was also observed in the form of small vacancy loops.
