Er-164 Information

Erbium is a solid silvery metallic element which belongs to the lanthanoids. It has six natural isotopes that are stable. Totally erbium has 36 isotopes. This element is used in nuclear technology as a neutron absorber. It is being investigated for other possible uses. Erbium was discovered by Carl G. Mosander in 1843.

Erbium oxide is used in ceramics to obtain a pink glaze. There are a few uses of erbium in the nuclear industry too and this element is used as an alloying agent for other exotic metals. For example, it increases the malleability of vanadium.
