We quantified the size and concentration of Te inclusions along the lateral- and the growth-directions of a ∼6 mm-thick wafer cut axially along the center of a CdZnTe ingot. We fabricated devices, selecting samples from the center slice outward in both directions, and then tested their response to incident X-rays. We employed, in concert, an automated IR transmission microscopic system and a highly collimated synchrotron X-ray source that allowed us to acquire and correlate comprehensive information on Te inclusions and other defects to assess the material factors limiting the performance of CdZnTe detectors.
