Gadolinium Metal

Gadolinium metal is rare earth, which is available in powder, ingot, granule, wire, sheet, foil, sputtering target and so on. It is silvery white metal and own ductility, which also own ferromagnetism and extraordinary superconductivity. Gd powder is soluble in dilute acid. It tends to oxidize in moisture air and turns dark. Gd ingot turns to white oxide after firing in air. It is relatively stable in dry air. There are two production methods, distillation method and reduction method. The distilled gadolinium piece is dendritic with higher purity than reduced one.

Applications

Gadolinium metal foil mainly applies to prepare magneto-optic material and magnetic refrigerant material. It also acts as neutron absorber material in atomic reactor. Gadolinium metal powder is catalyst in chemical reaction. It is raw material for fluorescent powder of microwave technology and colored TV.
