Zinc Telluride Zinc Telluride

Zinc Telluride belongs to the Group II-VI group and has the chemical composition ZnTe. Under hydrogen atmospheric conditions, tellurium is heated with zinc and sublimated to make reddish brown zinc telluride. It is frequently used for making semiconductor materials because of its broad bandgap. Zinc Telluride has a 2.26 eV bandgap. This is a common p-type semiconductor.

Zinc telluride has usually a cubic structure (galena) or “zinc mixturee” crystal structure. But it is also possible to make rock salt crystals, hexagonal crystals (wurtzite), and other forms. If irradiated with a strong beam, the zinc telluride will ignite under aerobic conditions. ZnTe can be refined through sublimation to form a grayish or brownish red powder or ruby-red crystals. ZnTe can grow on any combination of aluminum antimonide and gallium-antimonide as well as indium arsenide or lead selenide. ZnTe may also grow on certain substrates (such a GaAs), and can even be grown on glass as thin-film polycrystalline, or nanocrystalline. Thin-film solar panels. Its lattice parameters are a=0.427 and C =0.699 in the hexagonal wurtzite crystal structures.

Zinc telluride has properties

Highly toxic hydrogen telluride will be produced by reacting zinc telluride and dilute acid.


Zinc telluride has the following physical properties

Zinc Telluride (p-type, wide bandgap semiconductor) has a bandgap value of 2.26eV in room temperature and 2.38eV when heated to 77K. If you are interested in Zinc Telluride ZnTe Powder, please send us an inquiry.

Zinc telluride ZnTe powder performance

Zinc Telluride can be described as a gray- or brownish-red powder. It is composed of zinc tellurium and is chemically formulated ZnTe. Sublimation is a way to make ruby-red cubic crystals. The cubic crystals are stable in dry atmosphere, but decompose in water. This releases the toxic, malodorous, hydrogen telluride. Zinc telluride is used mainly in semiconductors. This can also be used in fluorescent and phosphorescent materials. This material can be used for light-emitting diodes and radiation detection materials.

How does Zinc Telluride ZincTe Powder be made?

Method 1: Place the polycrystalline Zinc Telluride into a Quartz Ampule. The tapered ends seal it. Bridgman is a method that allows you to gradually grow one crystal of zinc telluride out of the melt. However, to keep the zinc melt from sticking to quartz containers walls, the Quartz ampoules need to be sandblasted prior to coating them with a thin carbon film created by pyrolysis in acetone and ethanol.

Method 2: In water, sodium telluride and zinc acetate combine to make a yellow-brown precipitate of ZnTe.

Zinc Telluride Zinc Te Powder

Zinc Telluride can be described as a binary compound having the chemical formula ZnTe. This compound has ruby-red crystals and grayish-red powder. Its cubic crystal structure looks similar to sphalerite or diamond. Also, it can be made as a hexagonal-shaped crystal. It’s one of the more common semiconductor materials.

Zinc telluride has a similar main function to zinc selenide. It is a semiconductor or infrared material that can also be used.

A mature preparation and near-infrared pulses can produce a strong electro-optic effect on zinc telluride. It’s a widely used optical rectification (THz) radiation source and detector material. It can be used to make green-colored light-emitting devices and solar cells.

Here are some areas that zinc telluride could be used:

The LED and Laser Diode

Solar battery

Terahertz imaging

Electro-optical detector

Holographic interferometer

Laser optical phase conjugation device.
