Erbium

Erbium is one of the rare earth elements among Lanthanide series. Pure Erbium metal is malleable, soft and fairly stable in air. It oxidizes slower than some other rare-earth metals. Common uses of Erbium are as a photographic filter and as a metallurgical additive. Erbium can also be used in nuclear technology. When alloyed with vanadium, erbium lowers hardness and improves workability. Erbium-doped glasses or crystals can be used as optical amplification media.

About Erbium (Er)

Symbol: Er
Atomic number: 68
Atomic weight: 167.259
Element category: lanthanide

Erbium is a soft, malleable, lustrous, silvery rare-earth metals belonging to the lanthanide group. It is stable in air, reacts very slowly with water and oxygen, and dissolves in acids.

Erbium is commonly used as a photographic filter. It is also used to alloy with metals to lower the hardness and improve workability. Erbium isotopes are good neutron absorbers so they are used in nuclear reactor control rods.

Erbium compounds are rose-colored and have excellent absorption spectra bands in visible light, ultraviolet, near-infrared. Erbium oxide (Er2O3, erbia) has a pink color and is often used in infrared absorbing glass or coloring glasses.
