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.

In an earlier post I mentioned one of the presentations we gave at the 2013 SVC TechCon. The other presentation that our team delivered at the show (presented by Jacques Mateau) regarded another very interesting topic. The paper, High Temperature, Pb-Free, Metallic Sputtering Target Bonding…
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…
As I discussed in my last post, the industry has found that reducing the silver content of SAC alloys helps to improve its mechanical shock performance. However, low-Ag alloys such as SAC105 are still inferior to its Sn/Pb predecessors in some important ways. The graph below shows this…
