Lutetium Oxide Powder / Lu2O3 PowderTypical Applications:

Lutetium or Lutetium Oxide is a highly insoluble thermostable lutetium source, suitable for glass, optics, and ceramics applications. Lutetium oxide is a solid compound of cubic Lutetium and is white. Lutetium oxide is usually available immediately in most volumes. Forms of ultra-high purity, high purity, submicron, and nanopowders can be considered. Lutetium is used for phosphors based on high purity butane oxide powder (Lu2O3) (99.999%) because it produces the densest known white material, Lutetium tantalum (LuTaO4). It is used as a dopant in the reticular parameters of some substrate garnet crystals, such as indium-gallium (IGG) garnet. Oxide compounds are not conductive to electricity. However, some structured perovskite oxides are an electroconductive research application in the cathode of solid oxide fuel cells and in oxygen generation systems. The rare earth oxide compounds are basic anhydrides and, therefore, can react with acids and strong reducing agents in the oxidation-reduction reactions. They are compounds that contain at least one oxygen anion and a metal cation. Generally, they are insoluble in aqueous (water) and extremely stable solutions, so they are useful in simple ceramic structures such as producing clay pots for advanced electronic components and light structural components in aerospace and electrochemical applications such as fuel cells in which they exhibit ionic conductivity. Lutetium oxide is also available in pellets, blocks, dust, sprays, and tablets. Additional technical, research, and safety information (SDS) is available.
