what's rare earth oxides (CeO2, Bi2O3, Y2O3, Sm2O3)nanopowder? where's rare earth sputtering targets manufacturer? how to buy high purity rare earth ceramic target?

DFNano® supplier of high purity rare earth ceramic targets, manufacturer of rare earth oxide (CeO2, Bi2O3, Y2O3, Sm2O3)nanopowder or sputtering targets in china.

most rare earth metals are usually in the forms of lump pieces or irregular ingots, and can be further processed to different shape and size for evaporation materials, sputtering targets and other specialty applications. our capacity for various shapes of rare earth metals.

what's rare earth?

the rare earth nanomaterial include La-rich Rare Earth Carbonate, La. Lanthanum, Ce. Cerium, Pr. Praseodymium, Nd. Neodymium, Sm. Samarium, Eu. Europium, Gd. Gadolinium, Y. Yttrium, Sc. Scandium, Tb. Terbium, Dy. Dysprosium, Yb. Ytterbium,Ge. Germanium, etc

we focuses on the synthesis, processing, consolidation and applications of rare earth nano-particles.we had developed various methods to synthesize these nano-particles in the oxide, nitride, sulfate and carbide forms. These methods include sol gel, precipitation, plasma spraying, flame spraying and electrostatic atomisation.

rare earth elements or rare earth metals are a collection of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table, namely scandium, yttrium, and the fifteen lanthanides.Scandium and yttrium are considered rare earth elements since they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the lanthanides and exhibit similar chemical properties.

Despite their name, rare earth elements are relatively plentiful in the Earth's crust, with cerium being the 25th most abundant element at 68 parts per million. However, because of their geochemical properties, rare earth elements are not often found in concentrated and economically exploitable forms, generally called rare earth minerals. It was the very scarcity of these minerals that led to the term "rare earth". The first such mineral discovered was gadolinite, a mixture of cerium, ytterbium, iron, silica, and other elements. This mineral was extracted from a mine in the village of Ytterby, Sweden; many of the elements bear names derived from this location.

The principal economic sources of rare earths are the minerals bastnasite, monazite, and loparite and the lateritic ion-adsorption clays.

The rare earths are a relatively abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides. The elements range in crustal abundance from cerium, the 25th most abundant element of the 78 common elements in the Earth's crust at 60 parts per million, to thulium and lutetium, the least abundant rare-earth elements at about 0.5 part per million.

The elemental forms of rare earths are iron gray to silvery lustrous metals that are typically soft, malleable, and ductile and usually reactive, especially at elevated temperatures or when finely divided. The rare earths' unique properties are used in a wide variety of applications.

applications of rare earth elements

because of their ability to readily give up and accept electrons, the Rare Earth elements have become uniquely indispensable in many electronic, optical and magnetic applications for the Defense industry.

rare earth applications are ubiquitous and enabling in almost all sophisticated weapon and communication systems the US defense agencies has or will deploy in the future.
