Germanium is an important component in semiconductors and fiber optics. It has a boiling point of 5,131 degrees Fahrenheit and a melting point of 1,720.9 degrees Fahrenheit. Let’s take a look at some more fun facts about germanium as it pertains to a germanium wafer.
Germanium is metalloid, which means it has properties of both metals and nonmetals. Other metalloids on the periodic table are boron, silicon, arsenic, antimony, tellurium, and polonium.
The existence of germanium was predicted by Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869 after he developed the periodic table of elements.
