Germanium is a silvery-white semi-metal. It is brittle and used in infrared technology, fiber optic cables, and solar cells.
Germanium's unique characteristics include its transparency to near infrared electromagnetic radiation, the metalloid is also intrinsically semiconductive.
Germanium is a semiconductor. The pure element was commonly doped with arsenic, gallium or other elements and used as a transistor in thousands of electronic applications. Today, however, other semiconductors have replaced it.
Germanium is also used as an alloying agent (adding 1% germanium to silver stops it from tarnishing), in fluorescent lamps and as a catalyst.
Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) provides Germanium Powder (Ge Powder) and Germanium Metal (Ge Metal).
