Nickel telluride (NiTe) is a layered metallic quantum material. NiTe crystals have been synthesized at our facilities in its R3m layered form for the first time in the world. Currently the physical properties of NiTe is awaiting to be discovered. Our NiTe single crystals were synthesized using a flux growth method without any use of halide (I2, Br, Cl2) or magnetic (Fe, Ni, Co) impurities present in the crystal matrix. The material growth starts with electrolytic purification of precursor materials (Ni and Te) and flux decanting process at high temperatures. Our crystals come guaranteed environmental stability and electronic grade quality and thus is best suited for research and scientific applications. NiTe crystallizes in R3m phase and is perfectly layered. The crystal is easy to exfoliate down to thinner pieces as shown in our product photos. Typical product size is around 3-5mm in size and is single crystalline in nature.
