Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) is a leading manufacturer and supplier of high purity Gadolinium Evaporation Materials and a wide variety of evaporation materials. We offer our evaporation materials in powder and granule form. Customized forms are also available upon request.


Gadolinium is a rare earth element with a high magnetic moment. Due to its magnetic moment, Gadolinium is able to enhance signal intensity by reducing relaxation times. It is also used for semiconductor fabrication and nuclear reactor shielding. When combined with EDTA ligands, Gadolinium can be used as an injectable contrast agent for MRIs. Gadolinium acetate is a rare earth compound of Gadolinium. It is water soluble and decomposes to Gadolinium oxide upon heating.

High purity evaporation materials play a huge role in deposition processes to ensure high quality deposited film. Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) specializes in producing up to 99.9% purity gadolinium evaporation materials using quality assurance processes to guarantee product reliability.

gadolinium evaporation materials
