About Lutetium Arsenide

Arsenide IonLutetium Arsenide is a crystalline solid used as a semiconductor and in photo optic applications. An arsenide, an anion with the charge -3, is a rare mineral group consisting of compounds of one or more metals with arsenic (As). Arsenide anions have no existence in solution since they are extremely basic. These solid salts have very high lattice energies and are toxic due to the inherent toxicity of arsenic. Arsenides have applications in semiconductors, laser and light-emitting diodes, quantum dots, and optical and pressure sensors. American Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement.

The number of electrons in each of Lutetium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 9, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f15 5d1 6s2.Lutetium Bohr Model In its elemental form, lutetium has a silvery-white appearance. The lutetium atom has a radius of 174 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 221 pm. Lutetium was discovered and first isolated by Georges Urbain, Carl Auer von Welsbach and Charles James in 1906, all independently of each other.Elemental Lutetium Urbain was awarded the naming honor because he published his findings first. Lutetium is the last member of the rare earth series. Unlike most rare earths it lacks a magnetic moment. It has the smallest metallic radius of any rare earth and it is perhaps the least naturally abundant of the lanthanides. The most common source of commercially produced lutetium is the mineral monazite. The name lutetium originates from the Latin word Lutetia, meaning Paris. Lutetium is found with almost all other rare earth metals, but it never occurs naturally by itself.

Arsenic Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of arsenic's shells is 2, 8, 18, 5 and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d10 4s2 4p3. The arsenic atom has a radius of 119 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 185 pm. Arsenic was discovered in the early Bronze Age, circa 2500 BC. It was first isolated by Albertus Magnus in 1250 AD. In its elemental form, arsenic is a metallic grey, brittle, crystalline, semimetallic solid. Elemental ArsenicArsenic is found in numerous minerals including arsenolite (As2O3), arsenopyrite (FeAsS), loellingite (FeAs2), orpiment (As2S3), and realgar (As4S4). Arsenic has numerous applications as a semiconductor and other electronic applications as indium arsenide, silicon arsenide and tin arsenide. Arsenic is finding increasing uses as a doping agent in solid-state devices such as transistors.
