Cadmium telluride(CdTe) is a stable crystalline compound formed from Cadmium and telluride. It is mainly ued as infrared optical window and a solar cell material. CdTe doped with Chlorine is used as a radiation detector for x-rays, gamma rays, beta paticles and alpha particles. CdTe can operate at room temperature allowing the construction of compact detectors for a wide of applications in nuclear spectroscopy.
