Lutetium
Lutetium, atomic no.71, symbol as Lu, weight at 174.97
Lutetium, atomic no.: 71, symbol as Lu, weight at 174.97, is the last member of the rare earth series. Unlike most rare earths it lacks a magnetic moment. It also has the smallest metallic radius of any rare earth. It is perhaps the least naturally abundant of the Lanthanides.  It is the ideal host for x-ray phosphors because it produces the densest known white material, Lutetium Tantalate (LuTaO4).  It is utilized as a dopant in matching lattice parameters of certain substrate garnet crystals, such as Indium-Gallium-Garnet (IGG) crystals due its lack of a magnetic moment.
Stable lutetium can be used as catalysts in petroleum cracking in refineries and can also be used in alkylation, hydrogenation, and polymerization applications.
