Abstract : The objective of this research is the development and evaluation of single-crystal PbTe-SnTe alloys for potential use in infrared detectors to be sensitive in the 8 to 14-micron region of the spectrum. The research in the period covered by this report has been concerned primarily with methods for the preparation of photocell units, with investigation of the photoresponse characteristics of the crystals, and with investigation of the spectral reflectance and transmittance of PbTe-SnTe crystals.
