Germanium is a chemical element with the symbol Ge and atomic number 32. Here are some interesting facts:

  • Germanium is discovered by Clemens Winkler in 1886.
  • A lustrous, hard-brittle, grayish-white metalloid in the carbon group, chemically similar to its group neighbors silicon and tin. 
  • It is not thought to be an essential element for any living organism.
  • Like silicon, germanium naturally reacts and forms complexes with oxygen in nature.
  • Germanium oxide has a high index of refraction and dispersion. This makes it suitable for use in wide-angle camera lenses and objective lenses for microscopes. 
  • Pure germanium is a semiconductor with an appearance similar to elemental silicon. Historically, the first decade of semiconductor electronics was based entirely on germanium. 
  • Presently, the major end uses are fibre-optic systems, infrared optics, solar cell applications, and light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
