5N - 7N
5N Plus is the leading supplier of cadmium telluride (CdTe) to the solar cell (photovoltaic) industry. Typically requiring 5N purity, cadmium telluride is a semiconductor that enables the efficient conversion of solar energy into electricity.
CdTe is also used to manufacture nuclear radiation detectors (X-ray and gamma ray) for medical use.
Cadmium Zinc Telluride
6N - 7N
Cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) is used to manufacture radiation detectors (X-ray and gamma ray) that do not require cooling and that produce excellent resolution by directly converting radiation into an electric signal. Raw materials (cadmium, tellurium and zinc) of very high purity are required to manufacture this type of detector.
5N - 7N
Zinc telluride (ZnTe) is a semiconductor compound used in optoelectronic applications, as well as in cadmium telluride (CdTe) based solar cells and terahertz radiation detectors.
5N Plus manufactures and customizes high purity, dislocation-free, electrically-uniform Germanium wafers to meet demanding space solar and land-based solar applications.
5N Plus manufactures and customizes class-leading, high-purity Indium Antimonide wafers that provide superior resistivity, uniformity and lowest defects through a unique, unmatched crystal-growth method. The wafers are used in advanced thermal imaging solutions, focal planar arrays and high-precision magnetic and rotary resistivity sensors.
