Rare Earth Metal - Alfa Chemistry

Rare Earth Silicide

Rare earth silicides, due to rare earth elements (cerium (Ce), erbium (Er), ytterbium (Yb), praseodymium (Pr), ytterbium (Yb), gadolinium (Gd), samarium (Sm), ytterbium (Y) and europium (Eu)) and silicon, usually used in the production and design of precision electrical components. Rare earth compounds have excellent physical, chemical and optical properties, and are widely used in many different fields such as light-emitting devices, photovoltaic appliances, optoelectronic semiconductor materials and photocatalytic materials.

Structure and properties of rare earth silicide nanomaterials

When the size of the material is reduced to the nanometer level, based on the size effect and quantum effect, the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of the material are significantly improved. When the specific surface of the rare earth silicide becomes larger, the activity of the atoms on the surface will increase significantly, making it easy to combine with other atoms, so it can be used as a good catalyst substrate.
