"Rare earth materials (REMs) are recognized as a unique group of materials because of their unusual physical and chemical properties. REMs are essential for a diverse array of high-technology applications and key defense systems. This book describes the unique characteristics and applications of 17 REM, as well as their chemical, electrical, thermal, and optical characteristics, with an emphasis on physical and chemical properties. It also covers extraction, refining, and processing"--
