Tin whiskers are thinner than a human hair, but these electrically-conductive structures have been known to cause sudden failures and intermittent problems due to their ability to short closely spaced electronic circuits.

On Tuesday, Oct. 19, Indium Corporation’s Ron Lasky, Ph.D., PE, senior technologist, will host a webinar on these crystalline structures of tin at 10 a.m. San Francisco/1 p.m. New York/6 p.m. London/7 p.m. Germany as part of the company’s free webinar program, the InSIDER Series.

The term “welding” often conjures up an image of an arc welder’s helmet and sparks dancing across the metal’s surface. Although heat is often associated with welding, it is not always necessary. Cold welding is the process of fusing two metals together without using heat.

Perhaps the most widely recognized compound of indium is indium-tin oxide (ITO). This ubiquitous compound is a transparent conductive oxide used in almost all flat panel displays and touchscreen devices. While ITO is the most recognized of indium’s compounds, there are several others that provide solutions for a number of applications.

Liquid metals can be mysterious to many people as they challenge the mental stereotypes we have about metal. In most cases, liquid metals are too hot to handle due to the elevated temperature needed to transform the metal from a solid to a liquid. Gallium-indium alloys are unique—they remain liquid at room temperature, making them ideal for a number of emerging applications.
