Erbium foil is commonly used as a photographic filter, and because of its resilience it is useful as a metallurgical additive. It is used as an alloying element with titanium and is also used to produce infra-red absorbing glass. Used in nuclear technology for control rods; an alloy in vanadium to lower hardness, lasers and erbium doped fiber amplifiers, a colorant in glass and porcelain.
