About (6N) 99.9999% Selenium Metal

American Elements manufactures 6N 99.9999% Selenium for advanced optical and electronics applications. High purity selenium pieces, powder, and other forms can serve as precursor materials for the MBE growth of semiconductor crystals such as cadmium selenide (CdSe), lead selenide (PbSe), zinc selenide (ZnSe), copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS), and other selenides. These materials are used primarily in thin film solar cells and LEDs/OLEDs, particularly as quantum dots (QDs). American Elements quantum dot products include CdSe, PbSe, CdSe/ZnS, and others. Ultra high purity selenium is also used as an ingredient in some health supplements and beauty products. We also manufacture selenium in other purities and forms (see selenium metal). Please request a quote above to receive pricing information on 6N selenium based on your specifications.

Selenium Bohr ModelSee more Selenium products. Selenium (atomic symbol: Se, atomic number: 34) is a Block P, Group 16, Period 4 element with an atomic radius of 78.96. The number of electrons in each of Selenium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 6 and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d10 4s2 4p4. The selenium atom has a radius of 120 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 190 pm. Selenium is a non-metal with several allotropes: a black, vitreous form with an irregular crystal structure three red-colored forms with monoclinic crystal structures and a gray form with a hexagonal crystal structure, the most stable and dense form of the element. Elemental SeleniumOne of the mose common uses for selenium is in glass production the red tint that it lends to glass neutralizes green or yellow tints from impurities in the glass materials. Selenium was discovered and first isolated by Jöns Jakob Berzelius and Johann Gottlieb Gahn in 1817. The origin of the name Selenium comes from the Greek word "Selênê," meaning moon.
