Erbium (Er) General Information:

Erbium, element symbol Er, atomic number 68, is located in the 6th period of the periodic table of chemical elements, No. 11 of the Lanthanide series (IIIB group), with an atomic weight of 167.26. Erbium is a silver-white metal; melting point 1529°C, boiling point 2863°C, density 9.006g/cm3; Erbium is antiferromagnetic at low temperatures, strongly ferromagnetic when close to absolute zero, and is a superconductor.

Erbium is slowly oxidized by air and water at room temperature, and erbium oxide is rose red.

The most prominent use of erbium is in the manufacture of Erbium Dopant Fiber Amplifier (EDFA). Another hot application area of erbium is laser, especially as a medical laser material. Erbium can be used as a reactor control material; erbium can also be used as an activated ion for rare earth upconversion laser materials. Its oxide Er2O3 is rose red and is used to make pottery glazes. Erbium oxide is used in the ceramics industry to produce a pink enamel.
