Dysprosium, atomic no.66, symbol as Dy, weight at 162.5
Dysprosium, atomic no.: 66, symbol as Dy, weight at 162.50, is most commonly used as in Neodymium-iron-boron high strength permanent magnets. While it has one of the highest magnetic moments of any of the rare earths (10.6uB), this has not resulted in an ability to perform on its own as a practical alternative to Neodymium compositions. It is however now an essential additive in NdFeB production. It is also used in special ceramic compositions based on BaTiO formulations. Dysprosium is used, in conjunction with Vanadium and other elements, in making laser materials and commercial lighting. Nanofibers of Dysprosium compounds have high strength and large surface area. Therefore, they can be used to reinforce other materials and as a catalyst. Recent research has examined the use of Dysprosium in Dysprosium-iron-garnet (DyFeG) and silicon implanted with Dysprosium and Holmium to form donor centers.
Dysprosium OxideDysprosium Oxide Widely used in Neodymium-Iron-Boron magnets. It also has specialized uses in ceramics, glass, phosphors, lasers, metal halide lamp and electronics industry.
Dysprosium MetalDysprosium Metal An important additive for NdFeB permanent magnets to raise the curie temperature and improve temperature coefficiency. Another most promising use of high purity Dysprosium Metal is in the magnetostrictive alloy TEFENOL-D.
Dysprosium ChlorideDysprosium Chloride Has specialized uses in laser glass, phosphors and metal halide lamp.The other main application is used to Optical fiber.It is also widely used in Crystal dopant
Dysprosium AcetateDysprosium Acetate Applied to ceramics, glass, phosphors, lasers and metal halide lamp industry. High purity is used in electronics industry as an antireflection coating in photoelectric devices.
