The gallium compounds we offer include gallium trichloride (GaCl3) and gallium oxide (Ga2O3).
Gallium is a crucial material for building compound semiconductor devices. To form epitaxial GaN layers chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques are typically used, and the CVD gallium precursor (trimethyl-gallium) is typically made from high purity gallium trichloride.
Gallium oxide is needed for sputtering targets that consist of indium, gallium, and zinc oxides. The IGZO or GIZO sputtering targets are used in next generation displays, where high currents and pixel densities make it necessary to use ever higher performing materials. The GIZO material offers the right properties to deposit high mobility active channels for the thin film transistors in the display’s active matrix backplane.

A visitor at our booth during the 2013 SVC (Society of Vacuum Coaters) conference suggested this video. In the video, a piece of indium is rubbed against a piece of gallium. The result is the formation of a room temperature alloy (75.5%Ga/24.5%In, mp: 15.7°C). One of the fun parts of my job is…
Individually, indium and gallium each have some pretty interesting characteristics. Gallium is liquid at 30°C (86°F) and, because it is less toxic than mercury and has a lower vapor pressure at higher temperatures, it is used as a mercury replacement in thermometers and other applications. Indium,…
