Description of Hafnium Foil

Hafnium is number 72 in the periodic table. It is a silvery ductile metal. It has almost the same chemical properties and atomic radius with zirconium. Hf is a good transition metal. It is corrosion resistant and can withstand high temperatures. Hf is rare and has a larger density compared with zirconium and people are developing methods to separate them by density. Hafnium has a strong ability to capture the neutron, making it a great material for control rods in the nuclear reactors. The nuclear industry roughly consumes half of the Hf produced every year. Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) specializes in producing high purity hafnium foil.

Applications of Hafnium Foil

-Be used in atomic energy industry and aerospace industry, be used for the control rod material in the nuclear reactor, can be made for the small size and large energy rocket booster.
-As hafnium has a great ability to shed electrons into the air and has a high melting point, it is the crucial component of the electrode in plasma cutting.
-Hafnium also has a strong ability to capture a neutron, making it a great material for control rods in the nuclear reactors.
-Hafnium is also used as an additive to alloys. 
-Recently, scientists at Intel and IBM found hafnium-based compounds can be applied in gate insulators to make the processors even smaller.
-Hafnium wires and other Hf parts are also used in plasma cutting because of its ability to shed electrons into the air.
