Abstract:Abstract: Correlation between surface defects on LPE growth of HgCdTe films and Te-rich precipitates in CdZnTe substrates were studied. Results shown that three kinds of surface defects of LPE growth of HgCdTe film are as follows: surface crater defects , pinhole-like defects and concave pits, which related to the Te-rich precipitates in CdZnTe substrates. Substrate remelting process during liquid-phase epitaxial growth of HgCdTe film reduced numbers of defects induced by Te-rich precipitates in CdZnTe substrates. There was the negative correlation between the depth of the remelting layer and the matching of the surface defects and the Te-rich precipitates. The remelting of substrate surface layers during the liquid-phase epitaxial process affect the number and morphologies of HgCdTe surface defects, as well as the depth and the morphologies of the Te-rich precipitates.
