Europium is a malleable, silvery metal that belongs to the lanthanide series of the periodic table.

It is the most reactive of the rare earth elements. Europium, named after the European continent, is mainly used for phosphorescence. For example, europium oxide is a red phosphor that has been used in screens for color television and fluorescent lights. Europium is also used to make fluorescent markings on euro banknotes to prevent counterfeiting. Today, europium is doped into different host materials to make nanophosphors, which are useful probes in scientific research.

Europium Oxide

Europium oxide (Eu2O3) is a highly water-insoluble and thermally stable white powder. It is formed by igniting the metal europium. Due to the nature of oxides, europium oxide does not conduct electricity. However, it is widely used in phosphor and fluorescent applications. Europium oxide is hygroscopic and has the property of absorbing carbon dioxide and moisture in the atmosphere.
