    • Characteristics of CZT, Si and GaAs substrates
    • CZT substrates - effects of poor thermal conductivity on MCT
    • MCT epitaxial growth, with limitations - no substrate being best for all applications
    • Nonuniform substrate composition effects - and substrate roughness
    • Si-based substrates - Si, capturing the greatest interest
    • Substrate crystalline defect effects on MCT growth
    • Substrate impurity effects - minimizing leakage currents
    • Substrate orientation - and importance in MBE growth
    • Substrates for epitaxial growth of MCT
    • Substrates for growth of mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) - by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE)
