    Being a relatively new element when compared to many other known elements, Germanium has only been documented element since 1886. It has little to offer in the way of health benefits, but it still remains a useful element. Chemical Properties Germanium is the thirty-second element in the periodic table represented with the symbol Ge. It is located in the fourth period under group fourteen. Along with other elements like Silicon and Arsenic, Germanium is a metalloid. As a metalloid, Germanium shares characteristics of both metals and non-metals. This is what makes Germanium a semi-conductor. Meaning, that under certain circumstances it can carry an electrical charge. In its natural state, Germanium is a brittle solid which has a shiny metallic…

    title>INTRODUCTION Optical constants (complex refractive index n, complex dielectric function ϵ, and reflection and absorption coefficients R and α) of materials are of great importance for optical metrology in the semiconductor industry.1,2 A high-performance complementary-metal-oxide-semiconductor process flow with 11 layers of metal requires about 75 photolayers and may contain up to 100 thickness measurements, most of them performed using spectroscopic ellipsometry.3 This technique has…

    periodic table, one such element is Germanium. In fact, Germanium has a symbol known as Ge. A symbol is a shorter way to represent the element. All elements have a symbol, atomic mass, atomic number, and a number of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Germanium’s atomic mass is 72.64, this is the amount of mass in each atom that’s in Germanium. The atomic number for Germanium is 32, which represents where the element is placed on the periodic table and the amount of protons/electrons in each atom…

    A metalloid is a chemical element. Because of the name, most people would believe that a metalloid is metal, but that is incorrect. A metalloid only has some of the qualities that metals have. Two examples of metalloids would be germanium and silicon. These metalloids are used in everyday life, and our lives would be very much different without them. Germanium was discovered in the year of 1886 by a chemist named Winkler. The metalloid was named after Germany. When germanium is purified, it is a…

    For example, to clarify the relationship between the nearly physically identical elements Silicon and Germanium, the author used the analogy, “near twins and the black sheep,” singeling out Germanium as the “black sheep” although the pair of elements are “near twins.” Germanium and Silicon are both metalloids used in the technology and machine industries, however Silicon proved to be cheaper and more abundant, so Germanium has decreased drastically in it’s importance. To ensure further…

    properties alike. He realized through observations that the atomic weights of the elements increased between each family indicating that more elements existed. Although he made his periodic table before the Russian chemist, Dmitri Mendeleev, he failed to publish it before this man. Dmitri Mendeleev’s table was virtually the same but instead he described that it “could be used to predict not only the atomic weight of missing elements, but also their actual properties” (Chemistry Explained,…

    It modifies the electrical properties of substances such as silicon and germanium. Another benefit of boron for our modern technology is its use in neodymium magnets. These powerful magnets are an alloy of neodymium, iron and bron. The magnets used are found in computers, specifically hard drives. E-waste, short for electronic waste, can be any outdated or obsolete appliance or electronic device found in offices, homes and pants pockets. Televisions, microwaves, computers and cellphones are all…
