Dysprosium 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.
