A team of scientists have found replacements for these scare elements: a green phosphor that reduces the terbium content by 90% and eliminates lanthanum and a red phosphor that completely replaces europium and yttrium oxide.
In the research, efforts have been made to increase thermal stability of the silicate ceramic membrane as well as preserving its nanoporous structure by adding yttrium oxide to change the structure of the membrane.

It's one of the brightest stars of spectral type S, a type paralleling M giants but with spectra showing zirconium oxide, yttrium oxide, and technetium.
yttrium-Oxide Partially Stabilised Zirconia (y-PSZ) is a fully tetragonal fine-grained zirconia ceramic material made of 100% small metastable tetragonal grains (y-TZP) after the addition of approximately 2 to 3 mol% yttrium oxide (y2O3) as a stabilizing agent.
In this study, we wanted to improve the properties of the composite material by using both boron oxide as a sintering aid to improve the densification of zirconia, to lower the sintering temperature and to increase the thermal shock resistance of the composite structures and, the yttrium oxide as a stabilizer to produce defective oxides with oxygen vacancies in the crystal structure.
BASF Coatings GmbH has been granted a patent for an aqueous coating composition comprised of a metal oxide selected from the group consisting of bismuth oxide, vanadium oxide, manganese oxide, cobalt oxide, zinc oxide, strontium oxide, yttrium oxide, molybdenum oxide, zirconium oxide, lanthanum oxide, oxides of the lanthanide series of elements
