1. Tantalum nitride resistance is a material used to make precise sheet resistances.
2. As an additive of super hard material, pure tantalum pentachloride can be prepared:
used for spraying, increasing the electrical stability of transformers, integrated circuits
and diodes. In the manufacturing of integrated circuits, these films are deposited on top
of the silicon wafer to form a film surface mount resistance. Tantalum nitride resistors
are resistant to water vapor. Tantalum nitride material is used to make the protective
layer of chip wires.
