Polycrystalline spintronic material (Cd0.55Hg0.45Te) was synthesized by conventional solid state reaction. The samples ( = 5 mm and T = 1.5 mm) were prepared by uni-axial pressing. Samples were melted at 800°C for 3-2 hours. For chemical analyses, surface morphology and structural analyses, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) equipped with EDX system and X-ray diffraction studies were performed. XRD confirmed the cubic crystal structure. The Lattice constant of (Cd0.55Hg0.45Te) as determined by XRD was 0.6464 nm. The Miller indices (hkl) have been found by using crystallography method. The observed planes were (200), (210) and (331). The EDX analyses showed the typically compositions: Te 24.8% Cd 14.8% Al 5% and O2 46.4 % & C 9% (3 hours treatment) and Te 28.1% Cd 16% Al 4.1% and O2 39.3 %, Si 0.360% & C 12.1% (2 hours treatment) however we could not find any representative peak for Hg in all of the EDX analyses.
