Application of Rare earth metal

Number of visits: Date:2016-5-9

      The rare-earth elements (REEs) are a group of 17 elements (atomic numbers 57-71) that exhibit a range of unique electronic, optical and magnetic properties.

     Because of their similarities to the REEs, scandium (Sc) and yttrium (Y) are considered by most scientists to be REEs too. Components manufactured from REE-containing compounds can have a profound effect on the ultimate performance of a range of complex, engineered systems and devices. Rare earths are used in the manufacturing of iPods, computers, cell phones, hybrid car motors, wind turbines and high tech military systems work.
