Word Description
Rare Earth A common name for neodymium permanent magnets. The name is derived from the "Rare Earths" sub-category on the periodic table of elements (to which the neodymium chemical belongs).
Remanence The magnetic "induction" (field) which remains in a magnetic circuit after the removal of an applied magnetomotive force. If there is an air gap in the magnetic circuit, the remanence will be less than the residual induction.
