Interface Properties of Au/CdZnTe Formed by Different Method



In this paper, the effects of different metal contact treatments were systemically investigated. The interfacial properties between Au and CdZnTe (CZT) made by different methods including the electroless deposition, thermal evaporation and sputtering process were investigated by the Auger depth profiles, the adhesion force measurement, and the accelerated aging tests. The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics and the detector response to gamma-rays from 241Am for different Au contact treatments were also identified.
