Terbium, atomic no.65, symbol as Tb, weight at 158.9254
Terbium, atomic no.: 65, symbol as Tb, weight at 158.93, is primarily used in phosphors, particularly in fluorescent lamps and as the high intensity green emitter used in projection televisions, such as the Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet (Tb:YAG) variety. Terbium responds efficiently to x-ray excitation and is, therefore, used as an x-ray phosphor. Terbium alloys are also used in magneto-optic recording films, such as TbFeCo. Terbium is also used in alloys and in the production of electronic devices. As a component of Terfenol-D, Terbium is of use in actuators, in naval sonar systems, sensors, in the SoundBug device (its first commercial application), and other magnetomechanical devices.
Terbium OxideTerbium Oxide It is used in special lasers and as a dopant in solid-state devices.And it can mainly be as an activator for green phosphors used in color TV tubes.The other main application is in ceramics.
Terbium AcetateTerbium Acetate Uesd as an activator for green phosphors used in color TV tubes. It is also used in special lasers and as a dopant in solid-state devices.
Terbium MetalTerbium Metal The important additive for NdFeB permanent magnets to raise the Curie temperature and improve temperature coefficiency. Another most promising use of distilled Terbium Metal, code 6563D, is in the magnetostrictive alloy TEFENOL-D.
Terbium CarbonateTerbium Carbonate Applied to as an activator for green phosphors used in color TV tubes, is also used in special lasers and as a dopant in solid-state devices.It is another widely used in ceramics.
