Indium arsenide is a semiconductor material made of arsenic and indium. The semiconductor has a melting point of 942 °C and appears in the form of grey crystals with a cubic structure. It is very similar to gallium arsenide and is a material having a direct bandgap. Indium arsenide is popular for its narrow energy bandgap and high electron mobility.
The applications of indium arsenide are listed below:
- Indium arsenide is used to construct infrared detectors for a wavelength range of 1–3.8 µm. The detectors are normally photovoltaic photodiodes.
- Detectors that are cryogenically cooled have low noise but InAs detectors can be used in high-power applications at room temperature also.
- Diode lasers are also made using indium arsenide.
- Indium arsenide and gallium arsenide are similar and it is a direct bandgap material.
- It is used as a terahertz radiation source.
- It is possible to form quantum dots in a monolayer of indium arsenide on gallium arsenide or indium phosphide
- It is also possible to form quantum dots in indium gallium arsenide in the form of indium arsenide dots arranged in the gallium arsenide matrix.
