Terbium (Tb) Powder
Terbium is a white metallic solid with a silver luster. Its atomic number is 65, with an atomic mass of 158.9. Its melting point is 1,360 ° C and its boiling point of 3,041 ° C. It belongs to the lanthanide family of the Periodic System. In its oxide form, the heavy, soft metal has a dark brown color. Terbium and its chemical components are toxic. Terbium Powder serves as an enhancing element for fluorescent and luminescent substances. Zirconium dioxide, it serves to stabilize fuel cell cells at high temperatures. Due to its property of ferrous magnet, terbium is ideal for the production of magnetic construction components such as neodymium-steel-boron magnets. Terbium powder is also used in the doping of materials used in solid-state devices, such as calcium tungstate and strontium molybdate. It is also used as a stabilizing crystal in fuel cells that operate at high temperatures, together with zirconium oxide, in alloys and the production of electronic components.
