Los Angeles-based American
Elements announced the further expansion of its bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3)
production facilities to meet growing demand for the semiconductor material
in computer chip production. BiTe forms available include powder, pieces (also
lump and chunk), plates, discs, and sputtering targets for thin film deposition.
See product details at http://www.americanelements.com/tebi.html.
Recent research has confirmed that bismuth telluride may significantly increase
the speed of microchips and be the basis for the emerging next generation technology
know as "Spintronics".
At full capacity, the new facility can deliver several metric tons monthly.
The new production capability will affect deliveries beginning immediately and
small quantities for testing and qualification are now available. This will
also expand American Elements' production of several other semiconductor telluride
and selenide compounds and crystal materials.
