Ytterbium Fluoride (YbF3), also known as Ytterbium trifluoride, is a crystalline ionic compound. It is a water insoluble Ytterbium source for use in oxygen-sensitive applications, such as metal production and fluoride glass. Fluorides are also commonly used to alloy metals and for optical deposition. Ytterbium is applied to fiber amplifier and fiber optic technologies and in lasing applications. Ytterbium Fluoride Powder is a important colourant in glasses and porcelain enamel glazes, It has a single dominant absorption band at 985 in the infrared useful in silicon photocells to convert radiant energy to electricity. Ytterbium Fluoride is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra high purity, high purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered.
AEM Ytterbium Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available, as is additional research, technical and safety (MSDS) data.
