Description of Indium Oxide Powder
Indium(III) oxide (In2O3) is a chemical compound, an amphoteric oxide of indium. Indium Oxide is a highly insoluble thermally stable Indium source suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications. Indium oxide is a secure ceramic-like material, insoluble in water and volatilizes at 850°C.

Applications of Indium Oxide Powder
Indium oxide is used in some types of batteries, thin film infrared reflectors transparent for visible light (hot mirrors), some optical coatings, and some antistatic coatings. In combination with tin dioxide, indium oxide forms indium tin oxide (also called tin doped indium oxide or ITO), a material used for transparent conductive coatings.
In semiconductors, indium oxide can be used as an n-type semiconductor used as a resistive element in integrated circuits.
In histology, indium oxide is used as a part of some stain formulations.
