Abstract

We report the results of a DLTS study on the majority carrier deep level structure of three samples of n-type CdTe and the effects on the deep level structure of indium doped CdTe due to H2 annealing. H2 annealing did not qualitatively change the deep level structure of the annealed sample. It did cause the shallow level concentration to decrease with a proportional decrease in the deep level concentrations as a result of indium out-diffusion and compensation by native defects. Levels present in all of the materials studied have been characterized and attributed to either native defects or innate chemical impurities. Other levels present in indium doped material require above band gap illumination of the sample before they are observed. A possible model proposes that these levels arise from defect complexes.
