The following uses for indium are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. I would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.
- used in making bearing alloys, germanium transistors, rectifiers, thermistors, and photoconductors
- it can be plated onto metal and evaporated onto glass, forming a mirror as good as those made with silver, but with more resistance to atmospheric corrosion
- used to make low-melting alloys, alloyed with gallium
- indium is used in solders
