Mercury Telluride

Mercury telluride is black crystal, which is available in form of cylinder, rod, ingot, sheet,  pieces, granule and powder. It is stable under room temperature and pressure. HgTe is insoluble in water. There are two production methods, zone melting and Bridgman method. Mercury and tellurium are the raw materials.
