Indium Oxide (In2O3)
Indium oxide (also known as indium sesquioxide, or In2O3) is a yellow colored powder. It is a stable ceramic-like material that is insoluble in water. Indium oxide is an n-type semiconductor and thus can be used as a resistive element in integrated circuits. It also is used to form heterojunctions with materials like p-InP, n-GaAs, n-Si, and other semiconductors.
Other applications include glass (as a color additive), alkaline batteries (to suppress gas formation), and high current electrical switches and contacts (as an anti-arcing additive).
Indium oxide can be doped with tin dioxide to form indium tin oxide (ITO). Please see here for more information on this important transparent conductive oxide (TCO) material.
Indium Oxide is available in two powder morphologies, type A (crystalline) and type B (fine). Please refer to the product data sheet for more information on particle size specifications.

The Indium Corporation recently had a customer contact us looking for 50In50Pb solder wire. We manufacture large amounts of this indium-lead material as it is used in numerous applications. In this case, it was the application that was quite interesting. I won’t give any customer…
The plane landed, I got my bags, and I drove home. What a great show. The SMTA International show took place September 28 to October 2 this year in Rosemont, Illinois, and I was there. Last week I got the opportunity, with some of my colleagues, to attend SMTAI, experience several technical sessions,…
As with many companies exhibiting at SMTAI, Indium Corporation is featuring several new products that address many of the concerns of our customers. I recently posted about Indium10.1, a Pb-free solder paste that prevents voiding under large components, and we recently introduced RMA-155, a…
