Gallium antimonide

A bluish-white semiconducting compound, gallium antimonide (GaSb) is a notable photovoltaic material with applications across a number of industries. Also known as gallium(III) antimonide, this material is prepared through simple interaction of elemental gallium and antimonide under an inert gas.


While not nearly as widely used as some other gallium compounds, gallium antimonide is nonetheless a valuable semiconductor with direct applications across a number of fields. In particular, it is notable for its use in infrared technology and the intersection of its thermal, optical, and electrical properties.

  • Infrared. Gallium antimonide, like many gallium compounds, is of value in the detection and production of certain forms of light—in this case, infrared light. It can be used to produce infrared detectors, infrared light-emitting diodes, and infrared lasers.
  • Lasers. In general, gallium antimonide can be used to produce certain specialized lasers, for commercial and academic purposes.
  • Transistors. Though not nearly as widespread in its use as gallium arsenide, gallium antimonide at high purities has potential in certain types of transistor.
  • Thermophotovoltaic. Gallium antimonide has seen some use and heavy research as a thermophotovoltaic material, given its unique interaction with thermal, optical, and electrical forces.

We offer gallium antimonide at 99.999% and 99.9999% purities standard, with other orders potentially available by custom request. Contact AHP Materials today to learn more.
