About Niobium Nitride NbN Powder:
Niobium nitride is a compound of niobium and nitrogen (nitrides) with the chemical formula NbN. At low temperatures (about 16 K), the NBN becomes a superconductor for use in infrared detectors.
Niobium nitride is the first Ⅴ transition metal nitrides, its melting point and high hardness, excellent mechanical properties, thermal stability and chemical stability, excellent superconducting properties, the wear-resisting coating, building energy conservation, refractory plasma effect and supercapacitor, and other fields have been widely used, can also be used for making superconducting quantum devices. In addition, NbN showed a surface plasma resonance (SPR) effect, which indicated that the electromagnetic field near the surface of the material would be enhanced. Therefore, the material may have the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) performance through the electromagnetic field enhancement effect. Nanouniverse-library is a trusted global Niobium Nitride NbN Powder supplier.

How is Niobium Nitride NbN Powder Produced? 
A production method for a niobium nitride powder includes the following steps:
1) Metal niobium powder and magnesium powder evenly mixed, and into the vacuum reaction container and after pumping air into vacuum state, for the first period of heating, heating up to the set temperature, filling the argon gas, and heat preservation, then pumping argon gas, filling the high purity nitrogen gas, heating up to the second paragraph, after heating to the reaction temperature, reaction, after the completion of the reaction, cool to room temperature, the reaction products;
2) Crush the reaction product obtained in Step 1 and pickling it after sieving. After pickling, rinse it with water until the solution is neutral, and then dry it to get Nb nitride powder.
Applications of Niobium Nitride NbN Powder:
Niobium nitride is an excellent superconducting thin-film material, used to make highly stable superconducting quantum instrument devices.
The main use of niobium nitride is as a superconductor.
Detectors based on it can detect individual photons ranging from 1 to 10 microns in the infrared spectrum, which has important implications for astronomy and telecommunications. It can detect changes of 25 gigahertz.
Superconducting NBN nanowires can be used in strong magnetic field particle detectors
Niobium nitride is also used to absorb anti-reflection coatings.
Photocatalyst based on niobium nitride, which absorbs 57 percent of sunlight, supports the decomposition of water to produce hydrogen as a fuel for electrochemical fuel cells.
