      Abstract: In recent decades, rare earths have   become vital to a wealth of advanced materials and technologies   including catalysts, alloys, magnets, optics and lasers,   rechargeable hydride batteries, electronics, economical lighting,   wind- and solar-energy conversion, bio-analyses and imaging. In   this perspective article we give a broad overview of rare earth   resources and uses first and then of selected applications in   dedicated fields such as telecommunications, lasers,   photovoltaics (solar-energy conversion), lighting (fluorescent   lamps and OLEDs), luminescent probes for bio-analyses and   bio-imaging, as well as magnetism and magnetic refrigeration
