Production and serviceGallium antimonide (GaSb)

Gallium antimonide (GaSb)

Gallium antimonide monocrystals are used for producing various optoelectronic devices (photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, lasers, including quantum cascade ones) of “middle” infrared range (wave length is 2-4 mcm) used in scientific researches, environmental control (sensors of various chemical elements in gaseous atmosphere) and in defense technology. Another application field is production of thermophotovoltaic devices transforming IR spectrum heat source radiant energy into electric one.
