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.
The gallium compounds we offer include gallium trichloride (GaCl3) and gallium oxide (Ga2O3).
Gallium is a crucial material for building compound semiconductor devices. To form epitaxial GaN layers chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques are typically used, and the CVD gallium precursor (trimethyl-gallium) is typically made from high purity gallium trichloride.
Our germanium compounds include germanium tetrachloride (GeCl4) and germanium oxide (germanium dioxide, GeO2). We supply both materials at high purities. The optical fiber and semiconductor industries are the main users of these compounds.
