Related Products & Element Information

See more Terbium products. Terbium (atomic symbol: Tb, atomic number: 65) is a Block F, Group 3, Period 6 element with an atomic radius of 158.92535.Terbium Bohr Model The number of electrons in each of Terbium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 27, 8, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe]4f9 6s2. The terbium atom has a radius of 177 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 221 pm.Terbium was discovered and first isolated by Carl Gustaf Mosander in 1842. In its elemental form, terbium is a silvery-white soft metal. Terbium is found in cerite, gadolinite, and monazite. It is not found in nature as a free element. Elemental TerbiumTerbium compounds are brightly fluorescent, and a majority of the world's terbium supply is used for creating green phosphors that enable trichromatic lighting technology. It is also frequently used as a dopant for crystalline solid-state devices and fuel cell materials. It is named after Ytterby, the town in Sweden where it was discovered.
