Ytterbium fluoride is an inorganic chemical compound with a chemical composition of YbF3. It is white and crystalline in appearance with a melting point of 1,157°C and a vapor pressure of 10-4 Torr at ~800°C . Users of ytterbium fluoride will utilize it in place of thorium fluoride (ThF4) which is radioactive. It is evaporated under vacuum for the production of IR lasers.
