Gallium Oxide (Ga2O3)
Gallium oxide is the common term for gallium sesquioxide, or (Ga2O3). It is a white powder that consists of rod shaped crystals, with the β-phase being the dominant crystalline phase. The Ga2O3 rods agglomerate into larger, secondary particles.
Gallium sesquioxide is used in phosphors, cathodes for solid oxide fuel cells, piezo-electric crystals, GGG crystals (gallium gadolinium garnets), and, most recently, in sputtering targets for GIZO or IGZO materials. These sputtering targets consist of gallium, indium, zinc, and oxide. GIZO or IGZO is the most attractive material for the flat panel component industry regarding emerging OLED displays, as it provides superior mobility for the thin film transistors that control the display pixels.

Gallium Alloy Blog Posts
Today I was sent an article that involves TWO of my favorite elements, indium and gallium which, when combined with tin, creates an alloy that is used in the process of water purification.
Gallium has a melting point of ~30°C (86°F), which makes the physical state of the metal as predictable as the shipping temperatures it endures as it travels to you.
Today we discuss the technology behind the paper: “Extreme Toughening of Soft Materials with Liquid Metal” with Dr. Navid Kazem.
