  6. Spectrum of the source Co-57, registered by the detector J2 attemperature –15°С and a bias of +500V. 4.4 keV

  7. Spectrum of the source Cs-137, registered by the detector J2 attemperature –15°С and a bias of +50V. 27.7 keV

  8. TABLE 2The best resolution values (in keV) obtained at various energies

  9. CONCLUSIONS • Spectroscopic performance for detector crystals growth by both methods is compatible. • Further improvement of growth technology is required. • Efforts should be aimed at the improvement of transport characteristics. • The nature of carrier trapping should be clarify.
