Ytterbium is a chemical
element with symbol Yb and atomic number 70.It is a bright, soft,
silvery-white metal that is both ductile as well as malleable.
It is a one of the rare
earth metals and the metal tarnishes quickly in air and reacts
slowly with water.
It is not found free in
nature but is found in a number of minerals: mainly monazite,
gadolinite euxenite and xenotime.
Under very high physical
stress ytterbium’s electrical resistance increases by an order of
Ytterbium has 30 isotopes whose half-lives are known, with mass
numbers 151 to 180.
It is used in alloys and is
added to stainless steel to improve grain refinement and strength
and its compounds are also used as catalysts in the organic chemical
It forms in temperatures of
minus 13 degrees Celsius and 795 degrees Celsius.
It reacts with cold waters &
temperatures very slowly but will transpose and react to warm
temperatures and climates quicker than most elements utilized in the
In spite of the production
of ytterbium being small it does have uses that common folk are
probably not privy to.
It is extremely irritating
to the eyes and skin and also is an environmental safety risk as its
components and dust are flammable and can explode without notice.
Ytterbium fiber lasers
operating at the 1070 nm wavelength are perfect for laser cutting.
