Erbium MSDS File


Erbium is one of the rare earth elements among Lanthanide series. Pure Erbium metal is malleable, soft, and fairly stable in air. Erbium ions fluoresce pink light are used in imaging and optical applications. Erbium oxidizes slower than some other rare-earth metals and has a high electrical resistivity. It is typically found in small quantities and in combination with other rare earths. As a pure metal, Erbium has limited applications, however it can be used as an alloying element with titanium.

High purity evaporation materials play a huge role in deposition processes to ensure high quality deposited film. Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) specializes in producing up to 99.9% purity erbium evaporation materials using quality assurance processes to guarantee product reliability.

erbium evaporation materials

• Used in deposition processes including semiconductor deposition, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD)
• Used for optics including wear protection, decorative coatings, and displays.

Our evaporation materials are carefully handled to prevent damage during storage and transportation and to preserve the quality of our products in their original condition.
