Rare Earth Elements in Materials Science

Date: March 23, 2022

Time: 12:00PM - 01:30PM

You must be registered to participate!

The current global rare earth elements (REE) supply chain is highly imbalanced and tightly controlled by just a few countries. While the sources of REEs have become increasingly limited, REEs continue to find more applications, such as in electric vehicle batteries and permanent magnet motors. The March 2022 theme issue of MRS Bulletin delves into the REE supply chain from a materials science perspective. Hosted by Gorakh Pawar, Idaho National Laboratory, with speakers Simon Jowitt, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Vysetti Balaram, CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute, this webinar will complement the articles in the MRS Bulletin theme issue.

TALK PRESENTATIONS:

  • REE - Applications, Occurrence, Exploration, and Chemical Characterization
    Vysetti Balaram, CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute
    Talk begins at 10:21
  • Mineral Economics of the Rare Earth Elements
    Simon Jowitt, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
    Talk begins at 39:28
  • Emerging needs for high capacity batteries - Linking high performance with supply chain considerations
    Eric Dufek, Idaho National Laboratory
    Talk begins at 1:03:50
