Investing in Ytterbium

Ytterbium is a rare earth metal, or lanthanide. The ytterbium-169 isotope is used as a gamma ray source for radiography. It can also be used as a dopant in stainless steel production to increase strength and grain refinement, and as a doping material in high power and wavelength-tunable solid state lasers
