Abstract

Germanium (Ge) is a gray-white metalloid, and in its pure state is crystalline and brittle, retaining its luster in air at room temperature. Zone-refining technique has led to production of ultrahigh-purity Ge single crystals. It is a very important semiconducting material used as a transistor element and also for optoelectronic device applications, including extremely sensitive IR photo-detectors.
