Due to many excellent performances such as high electron emission intensity, strong radio resistance and good chemical stability in high temperature, etc. LaB6 is broadly used in military and high-tech fields, such as radar, aerospace, electronic industry, instruments, medical apparatus and instruments, household appliances, metallurgy and other industries. Monocrystal of lanthanum boride is the optimal material to make high-power electronic valves, magnetron, electron beam, ion beam and cathode of accelerator. It can used to made powder of hexaboride (a kind of rare earth): dysprosium hexaboride, yttrium hexaboride, ytterbium hexaboride and gadolinium hexaboride.
