Description of Holmium Metal

Holmium metal is a soft and malleable rare earth element. It has a melting point of 1474°C, a boiling point of 2695°C, and a density of 8.7947g/㎝³. Holmium metal is fairly corrosion-resistant and stable in dry air at standard temperature and pressure but easily oxidizes in moist air. Holmium has the highest magnetic moment of the naturally occurring elements and forms highly magnetic compounds when alloyed with yttrium.

Applications of Holmium Metal

  1. Used as a metal halide lamp additive.
  2. Used as an additive for yttrium iron or yttrium aluminum garnet.
  3. In the magnetostrictive alloy Terfenol-D, a small amount of holmium metal can also be added to reduce the external field required for the alloy's saturation magnetization.
  4. In addition, optical communication devices such as fiber lasers, fiber amplifiers, and fiber sensors can be made with holmium-doped fiber.
