What is Gadolinium?

Gadolinium is a silvery-white rare earth metal. Gadolinium is a soft metal with strong magnetic properties. Below its Curie point of 68°F, gadolinium is ferromagnetic and strongly paramagnetic above it. Gadolinium heats up when it enters a magnetic field and cools down when it leaves. These properties make it useful in specialized industrial applications such as metallurgy, MRI, X-ray and PET imaging, nuclear reactors, solid-state laser systems, and solid oxide fuel cells. Its magnetocaloric properties may have future applications in magnetic refrigeration systems. Due to its special crystal structure and magnetic properties, gadolinium is important in refrigeration technology and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Global production is about 400 tons per year.

Gadolinium (Gd) Sheet/Foil/Disc/Plate Applications:

  • Gd Sheet:  Gadolinium tablets are commonly used in scientific research and laboratory applications, such as catalysts and nanoparticle surface modifiers.
  • Gd Foil:  Gadolinium foil is commonly used in the nuclear industry as a neutron source or absorber in nuclear reactors. In addition, it may also be used in the aerospace field as a high-density material for balancing or offsetting vibrations, or as a radiation-shielding material.
  • Gd disks:  Gadolinium disks are commonly used in magnetic research and laboratory applications. Gadolinium has a high magnetic property, so in magnetic experiments, gadolinium disks can be used to prepare magnetic fields. Gadolinium disks can be used as a base or support to fix and study different magnetic materials.
  • Gd Plate:  Gadolinium plates are used to make magnetic components in electronic devices, such as magnetic storage devices, sensors, or motors. Used in heat sinks in spacecraft. Used in the manufacture of medical devices, especially in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment.

What Is Gadolinium Used for?

1. Gadolinium alloys are used to make magnetic and electronic devices, such as video recorders, etc.

2. Gadolinium is widely used as control rods in nuclear power reactors in nuclear power plants.

3. The isotope of gadolinium, Gd, is widely used in tumor treatment and neutron therapy.

4. Gadolinium gallium garnet is used to imitate diamonds.

5. Gadolinium (Gd) has a high magnetic moment of 7.94µB, so it can be used in magnetic resonance imaging and can be made into high-purity (99.999%) gadolinium (Gd) sputtering targets for injection contrast agents.

6. Gadolinium is used as a pipe material for nuclear reactors, a working medium for magnetic refrigeration, and a hydrogen storage alloy matrix for magneto-optical recording materials. It can also be used as a special steel and non-ferrous alloy additive.

How Was Gadolinium Discovered?

Gadolinium was first discovered by Swedish chemist Demarsis Euler in 1880. He isolated this new element from ore in Sweden. Gadolinium is one of the first rare earth elements to be isolated from ore by humans. This discovery opened up new directions for the research and development of rare earth elements.

Why Is Gadolinium Used in MRI?

Gadolinium is used in MRI because it has very special magnetic properties. In MRI, gadolinium can affect the magnetism of surrounding atoms, thereby providing clearer images. When gadolinium is injected into the body, it can enhance the contrast of MRI images, helping doctors diagnose diseases and injuries more accurately.
