Ytterbium was an explosive material vital in the production of laser cannons. It was used in conjunction with baradium to make usage of the explosive less hazardous. Ytterbium was found in rich quantities in the Sarrahban system.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ytterbium in reality is a metallic element. This may or may not be the same substance as the ytterbium of the Star Wars universe.
