1. Indium bonding is recommended for this material, due to some of its characteristics not amenable to sputtering like brittleness, low thermal conductivity, etc. 2. This material has a low thermal conductivity are susceptible to thermal shock.
Boron is a chemical element originated from the Arabic ‘buraq’, which was the name for borax. It was first mentioned in 1808 and observed by L. Gay-Lussac and L.J. ThÃ©nard. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by H. Davy. “B” is the canonical chemical symbol of boron. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 5 with location at Period 2 and Group 13, belonging to the p-block. The relative atomic mass of boron is 10.811(7) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.
Carbon is a chemical element originated from the Latin ‘carbo’, meaning charcoal. It was early used in 3750 BC and discovered by Egyptians and Sumerians. “C” is the canonical chemical symbol of carbon. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 6 with location at Period 2 and Group 14, belonging to the p-block. The relative atomic mass of carbon is 12.0107(8) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.
