Bismuth Oxide (Bi2O3)
Bismuth Oxide, also known as Bismuth(III) Oxide, has a yellowish appearance and is the most important industrial compound of Bismuth. Bi2O3 has a large energy bandgap & a high refractive index, which makes it useful in optical applications such as making glasses, particularly for making specialty glasses. The relatively low melting point of Bismuth Oxide allows it to be used as a flux in certain applications. This material is an electrical insulator, but its conductivity can increase significantly with temperature. Additionally, Bismuth Oxide is utilized in the electronics industry, particularly in varistors, capacitors, and other types of ceramic components. This oxide of Bismuth presents seven different polymorphs depending on the environmental conditions and method of deposition. Each polymorph has differing optical and electrical properties, making this oxide a wellspring of new possible discoveries.
