Indium is a very soft, silvery-white metal with a brilliant luster. It has found application in making low-melting alloys, germanium transistors, rectifiers, thermistors, and photoconductors. It can be plated onto metal and evaporated onto glass, forming a mirror as good as that made with silver but with more resistance to atmospheric corrosion.
