Linewidth narrowing attributed to superradiance has been observed in near bandgap radiation due to the recombination of impact ionized carriers in n-type CdTe at room temperature. The light emission was associated with a current breakdown that occurred at a threshold field of 12,000 V/cm in highly compensated n-type samples.
