Defects resulting from the crystallization of mother liquid inclusions are a common occurrence in crystals grown by the travelling heater method. The need to distinguish these defects from defects formed by solid-state precipitation is stressed. This paper reports on an investigation of Te inclusions in Cd1-xZnxTe crystals which were grown from Te-rich solution zones and it gives an explanation of the mechanism of their formation by interpreting the composition changes of the matrix surrounding them.
