Indium Corporation sells compounds based on the elements indium, germanium, gallium, and tin. These compounds are used in the manufacturing process of a number of high-tech devices, as these elements serve as crucial building blocks in semiconductor chips, electronic components, batteries, and other complex electronic products.
The compounds we make are inorganic compounds with challenging specifications. You can download the spec sheets from the area below - these are a great starting point to learn about our various materials. It is important to note, however, that your application determines what is the best specification. A compound like gallium oxide, for example, has five different crystal forms, only one of which might be suitable for your specific application. In addition, choosing the right starter material for our process will affect the amount of trace impurities. This may affect your process, as it might be sensitive towards some specific impurities. If you are developing or designing a process with one of our compounds in mind and want to find the best solution, please contact us. Our staff of dedicated engineers is always available to answer any questions you may have.
We manufacture our materials from small to large scale in our facilities in Utica and Rome, NY – all processing takes place in the USA.

Why do we care so much about target bonding? This is important because a sputtering target that truly performs will allow greater process flexibility, and higher throughput. An introduction from Eliminating Bond Stresses of Sputtering Targets at Operating Temperatures: “…It was observed…
Whenever two materials with different coefficient of thermal expansion values are bonded together, they will expand and contract as the temperature changes. Assuming these two materials are bonded rigidly, there are two things that can happen as the temperature changes: 1) the bond will break apart…
Fluxes are an interesting element of working with many solder applications. With so many specialized fluxes there is usually a perfectly-tailored flux for removing oxides from any solderable surface. Even though we love fluxes at Indium Corporation – not all of our customers share that same affection. It…
