Abstract:A new experimental setup for the investigation of electrical conductivity () in liquid and solid CdTe was built for a better understanding of the properties near the melting point (MP). The temperature dependence of was studied, within the interval 1,050–1,130°C, at defined Cd-partial pressures 1.3–1.6 atm, with special attention to the liquid-solid phase transition. We found that the degree of supercooling decreases with increasing Cd overpressure and reaches the lowest value at 1.6 atm without change of the melting temperature during heating.
