The interaction between CdTe and In during the formation of an ohmic contact has been investigated. Emphasis is placed on the study of the effect of thermally induced sublimation of cadmium on electrical properties of con­tacts. Presented results prove the effectiveness of cap annealing and rapid thermal processing in fabrication of improved ohmic contacts with limited Cd losses during the contacting procedure.
