Abstract
WE PROPOSE A PROGRAM OF RESEARCH INTO THE FUNDAMENTAL PROPERTIES OF LIINSE2, A LITTLE-KNOWN SEMICONDUCTOR OF THE I-III-VI FAMILY. THIS MATERIAL PROMISES TO BECOME A BASIS FOR A REVOLUTIONARY SOLID STATE THERMAL NEUTRON DETECTOR. DURING PHASE I, THE TERNARY EQUILIBRIUM PHASE DIAGRAM WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN THE REGION IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING THE STOICHIOMETRIC COMPOSITION. WE WILL ALSO ELUCIDATE SOME SURPRISING OBSERVATIONS MADE EARLIER OF CRYSTALS WITH RED AND YELLOW COLORS. THIS INFORMATION WILL ENABLE A DIRECTED PROGRAM OF CRYSTAL GROWTH AND PURIFICATION DURING PHASE II, WHEN WE WILL ALSO DEVELOP DEVICE CONCEPTS LEADING TO ACTUAL WORKING DETECTORS.
