Ytterbium - 70Yb: uses
The following uses for ytterbium are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. I would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.
- possible use in improving the grain refinement, strength, and other mechanical properties of stainless steel
- one isotope apparently used as a radiation source as a substitute for a portable X-ray machine where electricity is unavailable
