Since indium ingots have good light permeability and electrical conductivity, glass-state composites (ITO) composed of high-purity indium oxide and tin oxide are used in the plasma television and liquid crystal television screen industries to produce transparent conductive electrodes, and are also used as Sensitive components for certain gas measurements. 70% of global indium consumption is used to produce ITO targets.
Electronic semiconductor and radio field
Indium has high boiling point, low electrical resistance and corrosion resistance, and is widely used in the electronic semiconductor and radio industries. A significant portion of the metal indium is used to produce semiconductor materials. In the radio and electronics industries, indium is used to make special contact devices, that is, indium and silver oxides are mixed and pressed.
