An improvement in gamma-ray energy resolution is demonstrated for a room-temperature operated CdZnTe semiconductor detector that incorporates a parallel strip pseudo-Frisch-grid detector design. The device construction allows primarily for the measurement of electron charge carriers and not hole charge carriers. The detector is a three-terminal device that requires signal output to only one preamplifier, and its simplistic design offers an alternative method to single charge carrier type
