GALLIUM



Gallium has received much attention in relation to its application in the production 


of semiconducting compounds. Of these, the most important are the compounds 


of gallium with antimony, arsenic or phosphor. Gallium arsenide (GaAs) is used in 


the production of diodes and transistors for voltage rectification and signal 


amplification. Other gallium arsenide applications include semiconductor "lasing" 


and microwave generation. Gallium is also used in sensors to measure 


temperature, light or magnetic field.  High Purity (99.999%) Gallium Oxide 


(Ga2O3) Powder Elemental or metallic forms of gallium include pellets for 


evaporation source material purposes. Gallium oxide is available in forms 


including powders and dense pellets for use as optical coating and thin film 


applications.Oxides tend to be insoluble. Gallium fluoride is another insoluble form 


for uses in which oxygen is undesirable such as metallurgy, chemical and physical 


vapor deposition and in some optical coatings. Gallium is available in soluble 


forms including chlorides, nitrates and acetates. These compounds can be 


manufactured as solutions at specified stoichiometries.
