American Elements announced the further expansion of its bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) production facilities to meet growing demand for the semiconductor material in computer chip production. BiTe forms available include powder, pieces (also lump and chunk), plates, discs, and sputtering targets for thin film deposition.

Bismuth Telluride may increase the speed of microchips, and be the basis of spintronics. 

At full capacity, the new facility can deliver several metric tons monthly.
