Indium Telluride

Indium telluride is black or blue grey crystal, which is a semiconductor material and thermoelectric material as bismuth telluride. It has a cubic crystal structure and is available with ingot, lump, slug, piece, pellet, powder, rod, wafer, sputtering target. Indium(II) telluride is metastable up to 125℃ at one atmosphere pressure. It is stable in air, which is hard to dissolve in hydrochloric acid. In vacuum, it easily volatilize and vapor is table and does not  decompose. It has strong anisotropy and  metallic conductivity. When 10K, it turns to superconductor. Indium metal and tellurium are the raw material. Indium(III) telluride(In2Te3) is also available.
