Lead Sulfide [PbS] – universal detection element
- Light Purple, Grey
- 7.5 g/cm3
- 20 nm
- Industrial: Used as modifier in friction industry for enhancing heat conduction and regulating friction coefficient. Potentially can be used as a black pigment.
Electronics: Detection unit in infrared detectors, solar cell elements, light elements (LED), gas sensors and mass detectors core units. It is a good material for photo-semiconductors, photodetectors units.
Chemical: Can be used to measure radiation by measuring the change in the material's electrical resistance that the photons cause.
Optics: Used as infrared element in cameras and other optics elements.
Materials: Using in ceramics, films, coats and semiconductors.
