About Gadolinium Telluride

Telluride IonGadolinium Telluride (GdTe) is a crystal grown product generally immediately available in most volumes. Technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement. Copper Telluride (GdTe) is also available as quantum dots. GdTe Quantum Dots have the widest wavelength range reaching sizes as small as less then 500 nm; within the range sufficient to emit light in the blue-white range. Gadolinium Telluride Quantum Dots are charged aqueous soluble nano crystals with narrow emission spectra from 490 nm to 740 nm. Gadolinium Telluride (GdTe) is also used in solar energy and advanced optical applications.
