Description of Dysprosium Sputtering Target

DysprosiumDysprosium is a chemical element originated from the Greek ‘dysprositos’, meaning hard to get. It was first mentioned in 1886 and observed by P.E.L. de Boisbaudran. “Dy” is the canonical chemical symbol of dysprosium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 66 with location at Period 6 and Group 3, belonging to the f-block. The relative atomic mass of dysprosium is 162.500(1) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Application of Dysprosium Sputtering Target

  • Stainless steels alloyed with dysprosium are used in nuclear control applications.
  • As a cermet that cools nuclear reactor control rods, whereby it readily absorbs neutrons without contracting or swelling under prolonged neutron bombardment.
  • As a laser material by combining it with rare-earth metals, including vanadium.
  • Dysprosium-cadmium chalcogenides are a source of infrared radiation.

Handling Notes

1. No bonding service is presently available for this material. 2. This material has high chemical activity when exposed to the environment. Oil packaging and clean procedure are required to prevent it from chemical reactions.


The dysprosium sputtering target is clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.

These are huge! My mistake, I didn't realize how large these were when I ordered them. I haven't figured out what I'll be using these for but I'm sure these will not go to waste! So MAKE SURE you have ordered the right size!
