Gallium Oxide (Ga2O3)
Gallium oxide is the common term for gallium sesquioxide, or (Ga2O3). It is a white powder that consists of rod shaped crystals, with the β-phase being the dominant crystalline phase. The Ga2O3 rods agglomerate into larger, secondary particles.
Gallium sesquioxide is used in phosphors, cathodes for solid oxide fuel cells, piezo-electric crystals, GGG crystals (gallium gadolinium garnets), and, most recently, in sputtering targets for GIZO or IGZO materials. These sputtering targets consist of gallium, indium, zinc, and oxide. GIZO or IGZO is the most attractive material for the flat panel component industry regarding emerging OLED displays, as it provides superior mobility for the thin film transistors that control the display pixels.

Gallium Alloy Blog Posts
A new paper sparked my interest recently: Experimental Thermal Energy Assessment of a Liquid Metal Eutectic in a Microchannel Heat Exchanger Equipped With a (10Hz/50Hz) Resonator which talks about alternatives to liquid metal for high-temp heat exchange applications. Unfortunately, they left out my favorite alloy - eutectic gallium-indium or EGaInTM.
Indium Corporation manufactures 60 different alloys that contain indium, in addition to over 150 other non-indium-bearing alloys, such as SAC and SnPb.
Today I was sent an article that involves TWO of my favorite elements, indium and gallium which, when combined with tin, creates an alloy that is used in the process of water purification.
