The electrical and optical properties of the conductive n-type surface layer created in high resistivity CdTe:In by annealing at 400-600°C under Cd-rich overpressure was investigated. Slightly compensated donor level with concentration ND∼1.3×1016cm-3 and ionization energy ED∼10meV was obtained front the Hall effect measurement and the electron mobility reaches a maximum of 1×10 4cm2/Vs at 35K after annealing at 600°C. Purification of the n-type layer was confirmed by photoluminescence measurement, where decreasing of the emission lines related to alkali and silver acceptors were observed. The emission line at 1.854 eV, which is expected to characterize high resistivity material, was detected in as grown high resistivity samples as well as in the conductive n-type surface layer.
