Applications of Europium

Europium is a neutron absorber, so it's utilized in nuclear reactors to control rods. Europium phosphors are utilized in television tubes to offer bright red color and as an activator for yttrium-based phosphors. For powerful street lighting, a touch of europium is added to mercury vapor lamps to offer more natural light. A salt of europium is employed for newer phosphorescent powder and paints.
