Erbia
Erbia or Erbium(III) oxide, a pink solid, is a compound of erbium sometimes used as a colouring for glasses and a dopant for optical fibres and optical amplifiers.

CharacteristicsEdit

It was partially isolated by Carl Gustaf Mosander in 1843, and first obtained in pure form in 1905 by Georges Urbain and Charles James. Erbium oxide can be also used as a burnable nuclear poison for nuclear fuel.
