Rare earth elements and Yttrium in carbonate reef deposits containing hydrocarbons of oil and gas.
Yttrium is a heavy REE with a number of significant uses including; Yttrium Iron Garnets (YIG) are used as resonators for use in frequency meters, magnetic field measurement devices, tuneable transistors and oscillators.
Small amounts of niobium are used to make artificial joints, while yttrium is used to manufacture the coating that allows television screens to glow red.
Scandium and yttrium join the league of rare earths by virtue of occupying the two spaces above the single square reserved for the 15 other elements in the row below.
The Kipawa project new drill results confirm the grade potential for uranium (U3O8), yttrium (Y) and rare earths elements (REE).
The LEDs provide ultra violet emission based on Indium Gallium Nitride (InGaN) and red, green, blue (RGB) phosphors in the transparent resin, and differ from conventional white LEDs which typically provide blue emission with Yttrium, Aluminum, Garnet (YAG) yellow phosphors.
Tenders Are Invited for Fabrication and Supply of C-shape Calcium Vanadium Yttrium Garnets Sizes: 110 Mm X 110 Mm X 20mm Thick With 16 Mm Gap.
The topics include oxide laser crystals doped with rare earth and transition metal ions, nonlinear crystals for solid-state lasers, operation regimes for solid-state lasers, neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet and neodymium-doped yttrium orthovanadate, microchip lasers, mid-infrared optical parametric oscillators, surgical solid-state lasers and their clinical applications, and environmental applications of solid-state lasers.
