It is used as one of the components of the ferroalloy and is also used in the manufacture of electronic components. The two isotopes of gadolinium are the most effective neutron absorbers. Although they are limited by their scarce applications, they are commonly used to produce control rods in nuclear reactors, which act on absorbing neutrons, thus effectively terminating the chain reaction in nuclear reactors.
Like many rare earth elements, gadolinium compounds are used to prepare phosphors in color TV tubes and computer displays. Gadolinium is ferromagnetic, which means that, like iron cobalt, it is strongly attracted by the magnet. One of the interesting properties of gadolinium is that its Curie point is only 17 degrees Celsius, perhaps close to room temperature. The Curie point is the degaussing temperature of the magnetic material.
