1.2.1. Cadmium Zinc Telluride for nuclear radiation detection (X, gamma,beta, thermal, neutron,counter & spectrometer):
It is an important national security need to be able to ubiquitously deploy high resolution (preferably room temperature) gamma detectors in the ﬁeld to provide unambiguous identification of special nuclear materials (SNM) as well as other potential threats.
The energy resolution for semiconductor-based gamma detectors is deﬁned as the full width at half maximum (FWHM) of a peak divided by the energy of the peak. The ideal characteristic would be an impulse function. This, however, is not the case in practice and the detected signals can be challenging to resolve and interpret.
And we can offer CdZnTe material with the following properties to meet this application:
* High resolution [email protected] keV<?(please contact with our sales team)
* Good mu-tao value
1.2.2. For CZT sensors:
1.2.3. CdZnTe for CZT gamma cameras:
The CZT based camera features high spatial resolution, high-energy resolution, a reduced dead space on the edge of the field of view, and a compact format. The camera performance was first examined by comparison of small field of view examinations with those from an Elscint SP6HR standard clinical gamma camera. The new camera was found to give equal or improved image quality. The camera was then used for a systematic phantom study of small lesions in a background as would be found in breast cancer imaging. In this study the camera was able to systematically detect smaller, deeper, and fainter lesions. The camera is presently being used in a clinical trial aimed to assess its value in scintimammography where previous limitations of image quality and detector size have restricted the use of the functional imaging techniques. Preliminary results show high sensitivity and specificity with respect to X-ray mammography and surgery.
And we can offer CdZnTe crystal with the following features to meet this application:
* High resolution:
* Low to mid energy isotopes (50keV to 180keV) available, as well as high energy isotopes;
* With/without guard ring
1.2.4. CZT for solar cell:
N type or p type are available.
1.2.5. CdZnTe for gamma spectroscopy and gamma-ray:
And we can offer CZT material with the following features to meet this application:
* Both pixelated and coplanar available
* with Ohmic and Schottky contact available

PAM190619-CZT Cd0.9Zn0.1Te ingot x 55mm round ingot are available, offering purity certificate to prove pure CdZnTe (purity>= 99.99999%)
There are three growth method: Bridgman, THM, and floating zone. CZT Grown crystals are difficuilt in comparison to Ge and Si(Czochralski), the reason is:
• Te-reach secondary phases (inclusions and precipitates)
• Subgrain boundaries
3. Market of Nuclear Radication
Traditional Nuclear Radiation Spectrometers: Ge – High energy resolution, but cryogenic cooling required; NaI Scintillators – Low energy resolution
Room-Temperature Wide Band-gap Semiconductor Spectrometers: No cooling requirements: High CdZnTe energy resolution; High spatial resolution

Ge(Germanium) Single Crystals and WafersPAM-XIAMEN offers 2”, 3”, 4” and 6” germanium wafer, which is short for Ge wafer grown by VGF / LEC. Lightly doped P and N type Germanium wafer can be also used for Hall effect experiment. At room temperature, crystalline germanium is brittle and has little plasticity. Germanium has semiconductor properties. High-purity germanium is doped with trivalent elements (such as indium, gallium, boron) to obtain P-type germanium semiconductors; and pentavalent elements (such as antimony, arsenic, and phosphorus) are doped to obtain N-type germanium semiconductors. Germanium has good semiconductor properties, such as high electron mobility and high hole mobility.
Float-Zone Mono-Crystalline Silicon
PAM-XIAMEN can offer float zone silicon wafer, which is obtained by Float Zone method. Monocrystalline silicon rods is got through float zone growth, and then process the monocrystalline silicon rods into silicon wafers, called float zone silicon wafers. Since the zone-melted silicon wafer is not in contact with the quartz crucible during the floating zone silicon process, the silicon material is in a suspended state. Thereby, it is less polluted during the process of floating zone melting of silicon. The carbon content and oxygen content are lower, the impurities are less, and the resistivity is higher. It is suitable for the manufacture of power devices and certain high-voltage electronic devices.
