Abstract : The report summarizes work in several areas of research on CdTe which has received considerable attention, but has not been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. It describes the status of continuing activity on the purification of CdTe and single crystal growth. A second area of interest has been the problem of establishing preparation conditions which yield p-type samples with transport characteristics dominated by shallow acceptor levels in reproducible concentrations. Also described is the continuing interest in establishing preparation conditions which are responsible for particular band edge emission spectra. All three of the above topics are relevant to the problem of developing a better understanding of acceptor levels in CdTe.
