American Elements is a manufacturer and supplier specializing in producing Lead Selenide (PbSe) Quantum Dots. PbSe Quantum Dots are finding important application in solar energy due to their extremely wide band gap in which they absorbs light. American Elements manufactures quantum dots from several semiconductor materials, including Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), Zinc Indium Phosphide/Zinc Sulfide (ZnInP/ZnS), Zinc Cadmium Selenide/Zinc Sulfide (ZnCdSe/ZnS), Indium Phosphide/ Zinc Sulfide (InP/ZnS), and Graphene; for more information about uses and applications for quantum dots, please visit the Quantum Dots information center.

Lead Bohr Model Lead (Pb) atomic and molecular weight, atomic number and elemental symbolLead (atomic symbol: Pb, atomic number: 82) is a Block P, Group 14, Period 6 element with an atomic radius of 207.2. The number of electrons in each of Lead's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 18, 4] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s2 6p2. The lead atom has a radius of 175 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 202 pm. In its elemental form, lead has a metallic gray appearance. Lead occurs naturally as a mixture of four stable isotopes: 204Pb (1.48%), 206Pb (23.6%), 207Pb (22.6%), and 208Pb (52.3%). Elemental Lead Lead is obtained mainly from galena (PbS) by a roasting process. Anglesite, cerussite, and minim are other common lead containing minerals. Lead does occur as a free element in nature, but it is rare. It is a dense, soft metal that is very resistant to corrosion and poorly conductive compared to other metals. Its density and low melting point make it useful in applications such as electrolysis and industrual materials.
