Thulium, a bright silvery luster, is the second least abundant rare earth metal.
Thulium is rare and expensive, so it almost has no commercial applications. Holmium-chromium-thulium triple-doped Yttrium aluminum garnet (Ho:Cr:Tm:YAG, or Ho,Cr,Tm:YAG) is an active laser medium material with high efficiency. Thulium isotopes can be used as a X-ray source.
Application of thulium metal
Thulium is used as the radiation source for portable X-ray devices which are important tools for medical and dental diagnosis. Thulium is also a component of lasers with emissions in the microwave region, which makes them useful in military, medicine and meteorology.
REE has been widely used in electronics, petrochemical, metallurgy, machinery, energy, environmental protection, agriculture. Rare Earth can be used to produce fluorescent materials, rare earth hydride battery materials, electric light materials, magnetic materials, hydrogen storage materials, catalytic materials, precision ceramic materials, laser materials, superconducting materials, magnetostrictive materials, magnetic refrigeration materials, optical storage materials, optical fiber materials.
The following abbreviations are often used:
• RE = rare earth
• REM = rare earth metals
• REE = rare earth elements
• REO = rare earth oxides
• REY = rare earth elements and yttrium
• LREE = light rare earth elements (Sc, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd; also known as the cerium group)
• HREE = heavy rare earth elements (Y, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu; also known as the yttrium group)
