Europium Oxide Usage And Synthesis

Uses

Europium Oxide, also called Europia, is used as a phosphor activator, color cathode-ray tubes and liquid-crystal displays used in computer monitors and televisions employ Europium Oxide as the red phosphor; no substitute is known. Europium Oxide (Eu2O3) is widely used as a red phosphor in television sets and fluorescent lamps, and as an activator for Yttrium-based phosphors. Europium Oxide is also applied in speciality plastic for laser material.

Chemical Properties

Europium Oxide is white to slightly pink powder

Uses

Europium oxide, (Eu2O3), a compound of europium, is added to infra-sensitive phosphors to enhance the red colors on TV and computer-monitor picture tubes. It is also added to fluorescent light tubes to increase their efficiency, as well as to some materials to make lasers. Since it is a good neutron absorber, it is part of nuclear reactor control rods.
