Neodymium Micron Powder
Neodymium is a chemical element with the symbol Nd and has the atomic number of 60. Although neodymium is classed as a rare-earth element, it is fairly common, no rarer than cobalt, nickel, or copper, and is widely distributed in the Earth's crust. It is a hard, slightly malleable silvery metal that quickly tarnishes in air and moisture. Neodymium micron powders are black spherical high surface area particles that are available in high purity, ultra-high purity, coated and dispersed forms. Neodymium micron powders are utilized for use in preparation of pressed and bonded sputtering targets and in Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes including Thermal and Electron Beam (E-Beam) Evaporation, Low Temperature Organic Evaporation, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), Metallic-Organic and Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD). Also, it is used in such applications as water treatment and in fuel cell and solar applications. Besides, lead micron powders are commonly used in optical fibers, as a dopant in glass-making processes, textiles, coatings, plastics, etc.
