Theoretical band structure analysis on possible high-Z detector materials

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Theoretical energy band structure calculations have been utilized to investigate several high-Z materials for potential use as ambient temperature radiation detectors. Using the pseudopotential technique, the band structure for HgI$sub 2$ has been determined and the effective masses of the holes and electrons have been estimated. Theoretical mobilities of the electrons and holes as a function of temperature have been computed for HgI$sub 2$ and CdTe and are compared to experimental data. (auth)
