magnesium telluride is a white substance that crystallizes when it is heated in a combination of tellurium vapour and hydrogen. It is a strong and lightweight material with numerous applications in the industrial and medical arenas.

MgTe is a crystal grown product that is generally available in most volumes and is not as difficult to get your hands on as it sounds. The most obvious application of MgTe is as an anti-fouling coating for marine vessels. In the spectroscopic realm, it is used for gamma and X-ray detection in medical imaging devices as well as in a variety of other detectors.

Theoretical studies have shown that MgTe has a handful of interesting properties including: an optically thin semiconductor with a p-type conductivity, a nanoscale magnetic material, and a nifty tungsten telluride semiconductor. The fabled magnetic properties can be attributed to the presence of a large number of magnetized ions in the nanocrystals.

Most intriguing of all is the fact that MgTe is capable of generating a microsecond-scale magnetic pulse. This is not the sort of signal that can be obtained with conventional metallic electrodes. It also exhibits a remarkable reversible conductivity, with an excellent long-term stability.

MgTe is a great acomplishment in the field of anti-fouling coatings and can be used for a variety of other applications. The most important limiting factor in these applications is the cost. The material has the potential to be a game changer for many of these industries.
