Permanent magnets are those which retain their magnetic properties even in the absence of an inductive field. Permanent rare earth magnets are the strongest available magnets and are broadly based on two rare earth elements – neodymium and samarium. The rare earth here is a misnomer and these elements are abundantly available in the earth crust. However, due to the difficulty of extraction and high-cost involved in the refining and purification process, these metals are costly. Thus, the application areas for permanent rare earth magnets is limited.
