Abstract : The evaporation characteristics for CdSe are presented, and the film doping density is found to depend greatly on source and substrate temperatures. Pt was found to be more compatible with the evaporation conditions than Au. Triode structures of the class GaAs-Pt-CdSe and Si-Pt-CdSe were fabricated, and the results are presented. The CdSe may be an adequately good emitter at high current densities to enable the measurement of the triode range to be made in Pt. (Author)
