Tellurium Zinc Cadmium, abbreviated as CZT. The CZT crystal is a wide bandgap-compound semiconductor, and the melting point varies between 1092-1295 degrees Celsius as the amount of Zn is added. Widely used as an epitaxial substrate and room temperature radiation detector for infrared detectors, it has excellent photoelectric properties and can convert X-ray and gamma-ray photons into electrons at room temperature, which is the most ideal semiconductor material to manufacture room temperature X-ray and gamma-ray detectors so far. Crystal is the only semiconductor that can work at room temperature and can handle 2 million photons/(s·mm) compared to silicon and germanium detectors. In addition, the crystal splitting rate is better than all the available optical mirrors. Many advantages of the detector make it more and more widely used, such as nuclear safety, environmental monitoring, astrophysics and other fields. In the field of scientific research, the detector has a great potential in the field of high energy physics, for example, it can be used in the acceleration system of high-energy particles. Compound semiconductor detectors are highly competitive and can be expected to be greatly developed in particle physics applications. In addition, the detector has a wide application foreground in astronomical physics research. At present, the research of the detector is at a rapid development stage of a meaningful new subject materials began in the early 1991, and because of its high resolution potential and can operate at room temperature of the salient characteristics, has caused the industry sensation.
