Cadmium telluride has an excelent gamma-ray stopping power compared with traditional detector materials like Ge and Si. The growth of CdTe from Te solvent was used to obtain material for nuclear radiation detectors. The quality of detectors was tested by 57Co and 241Am. Total resolution is approximately 7 keV (FWHM) for 122 keV gamma 57Co and 5 keV (FWHM) for 59 keV gamma 241Am.
