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.

Spheres are the form of indium I use the most for testing solder wetting properties, because they have a precise volume. (As opposed to shot, which does not have as tightly controlled size or sphericity restrictions.) Spheres are commonly used as interconnections for flip-chip attachment and BGA devices.…
Interesting question from a Chinese die-attach customer this week asking about volume resistivity of solder. My friend, Eric Bastow, suggested that Indium make this available to all through a blog post. It is well understood by Power Semiconductor engineers that a key figure of merit for a low…
I clearly remember the first time I saw indium ingots. I had only been employed at Indium Corporation a few days. Outside an alloying room I noticed a pallette stacked high with silvery ingots. As I looked closer at the material, I noticed that this was not just a pile of tin or lead – this was…
