Neodymium

Nd2O3 - DANTEK

Neodymiumis a chemical element with the symbol Nd and atomic number 60. It is a soft silvery metal that tarnishes in air.It shows similar characteristics to the other trivalent lanthanides.Primary applications include lasers, glass coloring and tinting, dielectrics and, most importantly, as the fundamental basis for neodymium-iron-boron permanent magnets.The neodymium-based magnet is used extensively in the automotive industry with many applications including starter motors, brake systems, seat adjusters and car stereo speakers. Its largest application is in the voice coil motors used in computer disk drives.Neodymium has a strong absorption band centered at 580 nm, which is very close to the human eye’s maximum level of sensitivity making it useful in protective lenses for welding goggles. It is also used in CRT displays to enhance contrast between reds and greens. It is highly valued in glass manufacturing for its attractive purple coloring to glass.
