It is a promising thermoelectric compound with uses in doping, alloying, and nanostructuring, non-stoichiometric defects. It is also an important semiconductor that can act as a low temperature superconductor when doped. GeTe is also an important semiconductor material prototypical phase change material of high interest for applications in optical and electronic non-volatile memories.
