Ytterbium Sputtering Target Description

YtterbiumYtterbium sputtering target shares properties with its source material. Ytterbium is a chemical element that originated from Ytterby, Sweden. It was first mentioned in 1878 and observed by J.C.G. de Marignac. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by G. Urbain. “Yb” is the canonical chemical symbol of ytterbium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 70 with a location at Period 6 and Group 3, belonging to the f-block. The relative atomic mass of ytterbium is 173.04(3) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Ytterbium sputtering target has a silvery-metallic color, and it has often been classified as a “rare-earth sputtering target”. Read more: Ytterbium: Rare Earth Element and Application

I got many from SAM for our chemistry lab and we use them for sputter deposition experiments. They're great for chemical projects and science for the students.
