Thallium bromide (TlBr) is a promising compound semiconductor for fabrication of gamma-ray detectors. The attractive physical properties of TlBr lie in its high photon stopping power, high resistivity and good charge transport properties. Gamma-ray detectors fabricated from TlBr crystals have exhibited excellent spectroscopic performance. In this paper, advances in TlBr radiation detector development are reviewed with emphasis on crystal growth, detector fabrication, physical properties and detector performance.
