what's Er metal, erbiumoxide nanoparticles? where's Er2O3 ceramic targets manufacturers? how to buy erbium(acetate,sulfate,nitrate,carbonate),oxide(Er2O3)?

DFNano® supplier of erbium(acetate,sulfate,nitrate,carbonate),oxide( Er2O3)! manufacturer of erbium oxide( Er2O3), sputtering targets, Er metal, nanopowder in china!

high purity erbium oxide rotatable sputtering targets with the highest possible density and smallest possible average grain sizes for use in semiconductor, photovoltaic, and coating applications by chemical vapor deposition and physical vapor deposition and optical applications.

Most sputtering target materials can be fabricated into a wide range of shapes and sizes. There are some technical limitations to the maximum size for a given single piece construction. In such cases, a multi-segmented target can be produced with the individual segments joined together by butt or beveled joints.

what's Erbium(Er) Nanoparticles?

Erbium (Er) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are black spherical high surface area particles. Nano Erbium Particles are also available in passivated and Ultra high purity and high purity and coated and dispersed forms. They are also available as a nanofluid through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology.

Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

What is Erbium(Er)?

Erbium is a soft, malleable, lustrous, silvery metal. It is very stable in air, it reacts very slowly with oxygen and water and dissolves in acids. Its salts are rose coloured and it has a sharp adsorption spectra in visible, ultraviolet and infrared light.

Some erbium is added to alloys with metals such vanadium because it lowers their hardness, making them more workable. Due to its adsorption of infrared light, erbium is added to the glass of special safety spectacles for workers, such as welders and glass-blowers. It is used as a photographic filter as well, and to dope optical fibers at regular intervals to amplify signals. Finally, due to its pink colour, erbium is sometimes used as a glass and porcelain enamel glaze colorant.

rare earth metal Erbium(Er)

Erbium is never found as a free element in nature. It is found in minerals that include all the rare-earth elements. Erbium is one of the more abundant rare-earth elements. The main mining areas are China and US. The most important ores are monazite and bastanite, were it is present in extrable amounts. Better suorces of the element are xenotime and euxenite. World production of erbium is 500 tonnes per year.

rare earth oxide Erbium(Er2O3)

High-temperature corrosion-resistant coatings; Dopants for optical fiber and laser materials; Tunned insulator for Josephson junctions; Up-conversion material; Capacitors; Metal-oxide-semiconductor transistors…

The extra stable half-full 4f electron shell with no low lying energy levels creates applications as an inert phosphor host. Gadolinium can therefore act as hosts for x-ray cassettes and in scintillated materials for computer tomography.
