Not-so-rare-earth elements? Massive discovery of rare earth deposit near Japan could allay supply woes

By April Gocha / April 13, 2018

Scientists reportedly discovered a massive deposit of rare-earth elements off the coast of Japan in 2013—and now, they report that not only is the deposit sufficiently massive in terms of its estimated rare-earth resource supply, but that recovery of said minerals is rather feasible.

Advanced materials opportunity: ARPA-E offers new $130M round of high-risk, high-reward funding

By / April 20, 2011

One of the projects ARPA-E is seeking to fund are alternatives to five key at-risk rare earth elements. Credit: DOE, “Critical Materials Strategy.” The DOE announced today that it is adding five new technology programs to the ARPA-E portfolio and is ponying-up $130 million to kick these new programs off. This is good news. Now…

Europium’s superconductivity discovered

By / June 7, 2009

A duo from Washington University in St. Louis reports they have for the first time found a way to tap superconductivity properties of europium. In work funded by the materials research division of NSF, WUSTL professor James Schilling and then-doctoral student Mathiewos Debessai found that europium becomes superconducting at 1.8 K (-456°F) and 80 GPa…
