Applications

Mercury cadmium telluride (MCT)is the mostim- portantmaterial currently in use for the manufacture of high performance infrared (IR) detectors. Mercury telluride and mercury telluride-cadmium telluride are semiconductors which have been investigated as intrinsic infrared detecting materials. Complete coverage of the low-loss fiber windows by mercury telluride quantum dot are used in colloidal nanocrystals for telecommunications.

Notes

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from strong oxidizing agents.
