Semi-metallic mercury telluride has been proven as an excellent absorber material due to its low heat capacity, however, EPIR's research team has demonstrated a breakthrough that proves that MBE grown mercury-cadmium-telluride (MCT) combines an excellent conductivity with an even lower heat capacity and hence allows superior energy resolution.

Made of platinum silicide, these detectors offer only about one-tenth the sensitivity of today's mercury-cadmium-telluride arrays, but they match them in size, with an unprecedented 65,000 pixels.
Today's best infrared (heat) detectors -- largely used by the military (as night scopes to view troops and weapons) and on remote-sensing satellites -- rely on mercury-cadmium-telluride semiconductors.
