Abstract : The third quarterly report for the program to grow large plates of CdTe by vapor transport in a sealed system covers the period July-August, 1982. The decision was made last quarter to abandon the completely vapor growth process and to change to combination liquid-vapor process carried our in a three chamber quartz container. The results for the first three attempts have demonstrated the promise of the method. Large grain plates 6 in. in diameter weighing 1 Kgm were grown in less than 48 hours. Scale up to 8 in. diameter plates weighing several kilograms will occur in the next quarter. (Author)
