Gadolinium Metal Descfription

Gadolinium metal has unusual metallurgic properties. Just 1% gadolinium can greatly improve the workability and resistance to high-temperature oxidation of iron, chromium, and related alloys. As a metal or salt, gadolinium has an exceptionally high absorption of neutrons and therefore is used for shielding in neutron radiography and in nuclear reactors. At room temperature gadolinium crystallizes in the hexagonal, close-packed alpha form. The metal is relatively stable in dry air but tarnishes in moist air.

Gadolinium Metal Application

- Gadolinium is used as a secondary, emergency shut-down measure in some nuclear reactors, particularly of the CANDU type.
- Gadolinium is also used for making gadolinium yttrium garnet.
- As a phosphor, gadolinium is applied in magnetic resonance imaging.
- Gadolinium compounds are mainly used for making green phosphors for color TV tubes.
