[Paper] Replacement and Original Magnet Engineering Options (ROMEOs): A European Seventh Framework Project to Develop Advanced Permanent Magnets Without, or with Reduced Use of, Critical Raw Materials

New paper Our latest paper has been published in JOM (Springer). It is a summary of the achievements (so far) of the ROMEO fp7 project. ROMEO is a project that aims to research and develop novel microstructural-engineering strategies that will dramatically improve the properties of magnets based purely on light rare earth elements, especially the coercivity, which will enable them to be used for applications above 100 degrees C. Abstract The rare-earth crisis, which peaked in the summer of 2011 with the prices of both light and heavy rare earths soaring to unprecedented levels, brought about the widespread realization that the long-term availability and price stability of rare earths could not be guaranteed....
