Dysprosium Powder

Dysprosium powder is gray fine particles, which is a kind of rare earth metal. Its size could be custom-made. It is stable in air. When close to o℃, dysprosium metal has superconductivity. At high temperature, it easy to oxidize by air and water, which form dysprosium(III) oxide. Dysprosium also have good property of optical, electric, magnetic and nuclear except common chemical activity of rare earth elements, as misch metal and compounds. It can also process into ingot, foil, sheet, rod, wire and sputtering target. There are two production method of Dy metal, distillation method and reducation method. The distilled dysprosium piece is dendritic with higher purity than reduced one. Dy ingot is of REM 99.9% by distillation method. Dy powder is of REM 99.9% and particle size -100mesh and -200mesh.

Dysprosium metal is mainly for producing new lighting source dysprosium lamp. it is control material in reactor.  It is necessary metal raw material for terfenol.

Dy element is raw material for magnetic alloys Nd-Fe-B , infrared ray generator and laser materials.

Fluorescent powder need dysprosium as activating agent. Luminescent materials doping dysprosium can be as trichromatic phosphor.
