Ensuring the future affordability of wind turbines, computers and electric cars

Technologies from wind turbines to electric vehicles rely on critical materials called rare-earth elements. These elements, though often abundant, can be difficult and increasingly costly to come by. Now, scientists looking for alternatives have reported a new way to make nanoparticles that could replace some rare-earth materials and help ensure the continued supply of products people have come to depend on.
