Wind turbines, auto engines to get new substitute magnetic alloy developed by AMES lab

A US research team from the government-owned AMES lab has developed a new magnetic alloy to substitute the expensive ‘Dysprosium’ that is used in car engines and wind turbines. The new alloy composed of neodymium, boron and iron co-doped with cobalt and cerium, that is abundantly available, will replace the dysprosium, making these engines less expensive by 20 to 40%. ...

Game changer alloy ‘cerium’ to bring down engine cost of wind trubines, cars soon

The rare-earth element ‘Dysprosium’, highly expensive and rarely available, will soon be replaced with an alternative to this traditionally used material called ‘Dysprosium’, said a team of researchers from AMES Lab in the US. The element dysprosium is used in high performance permanent magnets that are used in car engines and wind turbines and cerium can replace the element abnd ...
