Application of yttrium

Yttrium oxide is used as the host lattice in the production of phosphors used in color televisions and LEDs. Yttrium is also used to produce a variety of synthetic garnets with different applications, such as microwave filters, acoustic energy transmitters, and transducers. Yttrium is used to produce powerful pulsed lasers and superconductors. In the biomedical field, yttrium is used in cancer treatment drugs, rheumatoid arthritis drugs, and surgical supplies.

Small amounts of yttrium reduce the grain size of chromium, molybdenum, titanium and zirconium. Yttrium is also used to increase the strength of aluminum and magnesium alloys. Adding yttrium to the alloy can generally increase the resistance to high-temperature recrystallization and high-temperature oxidation.
