Dysprosium metal is a rare earth metal with a silver sheen. It is not found in nature in pure form, but is part of some minerals.
Main application in metallurgy. Dysprosium serves as an alloying component of zinc alloys. Adding dysprosium to zirconium dramatically improves its manufacturability
Laser materials. Dysprosium ions are used in medical lasers (wavelength – 2.36 microns)
Catalysts. Used as an effective catalyst.
Magnetic materials. Dysprosium oxide is used in the production of heavy duty magnets.

Dysprosium was first identified in 1886 by Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran, but it was not isolated in pure form until the development of ion-exchange techniques in the 1950s. Dysprosium has relatively few applications where it cannot be replaced by other chemical elements. It is used for its high thermal neutron absorption cross-section in making control rods in nuclear reactors, for its high magnetic susceptibility in data storage applications, and as a component of Terfenol-D (a magnetostrictive material).
