In recent times, neodymium oxide nanoparticles ([Nd.sup.+] NPs) had been in the application of optical and magnetic nanomaterials due to their unique optical properties [5].
The neodymium oxide in the glass network acts as a modifier by occupying the interstitial space in the network and creating more NBO in the structure.
Assays return up to 12.8% total rare earth oxides, confirming the potential for a high neodymium oxide resource.
Individual light rare earth element grades, in kilograms per tonne (kg/t) were 0.77 kg/t lanthanum oxide, 2.2 kg/t cerium oxide, 0.26 kg/t praseodymium oxide, 1.08 kg/t neodymium oxide and 0.28 kg/t samarium oxide.
- Three drill holes have intersected exceptional TREO(1) grades in the newly discovered "North Tardiff" sub-zone starting at bedrock surface with individual 2 metre samples running up to 19.84% TREO with 5.3% neodymium oxide within an 11 meter intercept averaging 10.78% TREO (7% HREO/TREO).
(C: DEFN) has received further successful metallurgical test results (80% recovery of cerium, lanthanum and neodymium oxides) for their Wicheeda rare earth element property from SGS Canada Inc.
Among the topics are hydrogen gettering within processed oxygen-implanted silicon, semi-analytical models of field-effect transistors with low-dimensional channels, polysilicon on insulator structures for sensor application at electron irradiation and magnetic fields, routes towards novel active pressure sensors in SOI technology, and interfaces and bulk properties of high-K gadolinium and neodymium oxides on silicon.
Recently, glass-ceramics containing neodymium oxides have been found in applications for several different purposes.
