The indium compound that is widely recognized today is indium tin oxide (ITO), a transparent conductor that is essential for building flat panel displays and touch sensors. TVs, computer monitors, tablets and smart phones all use ITO to enable the switching of pixels and to register touch events. In fact, ITO applications dominate the use of all indium across the world today.
However, other indium compounds also play important roles across various high tech industries. These materials include indium trichloride, indium oxide, indium hydroxide and yet other compounds. Details can be found on the product pages linked below.
