Optical fibers used in telecommunications operate by confining the light signal to their core and acting as a waveguide for the electromagnetic light wave.
In order to transport the optical signal, the refractive index at the center of the fiber needs to be raised, which is most commonly achieved by using germanium as a dopant. Both germanium tetrachloride and germanium oxide therefore play an important part in optical fiber manufacturing. The starting material for making optical fibers are preforms made from fused silica, and the germanium doping occurs at the center of these preforms.
In addition to providing germanium tetrachloride and germanium oxide to optical fiber manufacturers, we also provide reclaim services that use material that are collected after our customers’ manufacturing process and process them to reclaim and recycle the germanium metal.

这几年来，因为某些芯片公司的芯片又要薄，又要低功率，它们自己芯片的warpage又控制不好，在工艺制造流程中出现了新的业界defect, non-wet open, 简称NWO. (不好意思，中文我还真不知道叫啥呢。) 这个现象，就是在贴片某些BGA后，回流过程中由于BGA“笑了”,…
Folks, Let's check in on Patty....... Patty was intensely preparing a lecture on Bayes' Theorem. She always felt that this theorem was the most profound in probability and statistics. She remembered a real application, when her best friend took the Tine test for tuberculosis before…
SMT Optimization for Success Part 3: Flux Chemistry In our continued discussion on optimizing the stencil printing process (see Part 1, Part 2), the type of flux chemistry, specifically water-soluble vs. no-clean, also plays a significant role. Solder pastes are sensitive to the environment to which…
