This standard applies to wide-bandgap semiconductor radiation detectors, such as cadmium telluride (CdTe), cadmium-zinc-telluride (CdZnTe, referred to herein as CZT), and mercuric iodide (HgI2) used in the detection and measurement of ionizing radiation at room temperature; gamma rays, X-rays, and charged particles are covered. The measurement procedures described herein apply primarily to detector elements having planar, hemispherical, or other geometries in which charge carriers of both polarities contribute to the output signal. When the devices are an integral part of a system, it may not be possible for a user to make tests on the detector alone. In this instance, tests on the detector element must be established by mutual agreement between the manufacturer and the user.
