Decomposition temperature of ZnSe:Cl crystal

Any one knows what the decomposition temperature of ZnSe semiconductor doped with Cl is? I am doing some annealing with a simple equipment but worring about the volatilization of Cl, which would be dangerous.
Thanks a lot!!

I stumbled across an abstract of paper with temperatures at 250-300°C.

Try this link - [URL [Broken] ]Ti/Pt/Au Ohmic Contacts to n-Type ZnSe [/url] - unfortunately, it's only an abstract and registration with the Japanese Journal of Applied Physics is required to downlaod the pdf file.
