PPM Pure Metals » Cadmium



High purity Cadmium is used in the manufacture of the compound semiconductor material CdTe which is used to grow CdTe single crystals.

High purity CdTe is used to make in infrared optics (blanks and lenses) that operate in a particular IR-range – mono and poly crystalline. It is also used to make infrared detectors (CdHgTe on CdZnTe) and X-ray detectors (CdZnTe) – mono crystalline, important for modern medical technology.
