Product Name

Ytterbium Metal/ Sputtering Target

Product Description

Ytterbium Oxide, also called Ytterbia, is being applied to numerous fiber amplifier and fiber optic technologies, High purity Ytterbium Oxide are widely applied as a doping agent for garnet crystals in lasers a important colourant in glasses and porcelain enamel glazes.

Ytterbium metal is a silver-gray active metal with a molecular formula of Yb. The powder is easily self-igniting in the air and easily soluble in acid, Insoluble in water, After exposure to oxygen in the air, it is very easy to exotherm into oxidized rare earth, The package is sealed and must not be in contact with air. It should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, halogens, and food chemicals. Avoid mixing.

Product Application

As a raw materials for other Special alloys ,Hydrogen storage alloy additives and Magnetostrictive material,etc.
