What is Arsanide,



  1. 0 Votes

    Arsenide is an arsenic compound with an element that is more electropositive. An electropositive element has atoms which are more likely to lose electrons, and which form positive ions.

    An example would be Gallium Arsenide, which is being used in solar cells because of it’s semi-conductor qualities. It very easily absorbs light, which means that only a few microns are needed to be used in solar cells. It does not retain heat, which is helpful when dealing with a heating machine like the sun. It allows for greater flexibility in solar cells and it is also very resistant to radiation damage from the sun, which means the solar cells last longer.
