Porduct Name

Erbium Fluoride

Product Description

Erbium fluoride is our main products. Erbium fluoride is a chemical substance with a molecular formula of ErF3, a Pale Pink Powder, that is insoluble in water and soluble in acid. It is usually prepared by reacting Erbium Carbonate and hydrofluoric acid to prepare a solution and then dehydrating at a high temperature.

Product Application

Erbium Fluoride, High purity Erbium Fluoride is applied as dopant in making optical fibre and amplifier. Erbium-doped optical silica-glass fibers are the active element in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), which are widely used in optical communications. The same fibers can be used to create fiber lasers, In order to work efficiently, Erbium-doped fiber is usually co-doped with glass modifiers/homogenizers, often aluminum or phosphors
