Nd-150 Information

Neodymium is a hard bright silvery metallic element, belongs to the lanthanoids. Totally there are 38 isotopes of neodymium. There are 7 natural isotopes of neodymium, 5 of them are stable. Nd-144 is the natural radioactive isotope with a half-life of 2,38⋅10 in 15 degree years. The metal neodymium is used in glass works to color class a shade of violet-purple and make it dichroic. Neodymium is one of the more reactive rare-earth metals, quickly reacts with air. It is used in some rare-earth alloys. Neodymium is used to color the glass used in welder's glasses. This element is also used in very powerful, permanent magnets (Nd2Fe14B). Neodymium was discovered by Carl F. Auer von Welsbach in Austria in 1885 by separating didymium into its elemental components Praseodymium and neodymium. The name Neodymium comes from the Greek words 'neos didymos' which means 'new twin'. Neodymium should be considered highly toxic, however evidence would seem to show that it acts as little more than a skin and eye irritant. The dust of neodymium however presents a fire and explosion hazard.

Neodymium is used in making artificial garnet for lasers. Also it is used in ceramics and for a special lens with praseodymium. This metal is also used to produce bright purple glass and special glass that filters infrared radiation. It makes up 18% of Mich metal, which is used in making steel.
