About CZT

CZT is a room temperature semiconductor that directly converts x-ray or gamma-ray photons into electrons. CZT is a unique semiconductor compared with Silicon and Germanium detectors, in that CZT operates at room temperature and can process >10 million photons / second /mm^2. Additionally, CZT's spectroscopic resolution clearly out performs any commercially available Scintallator. The unique combination of spectroscopy and very high count rate capability at room temperature makes CZT an ideal detector solution for Medical, Industrial, Homeland Security and Laboratory applications.
