A new luminescent sensor can detect rare earth elements (REEs) from complex samples of waste resources, such as acid mine drainage. The sensor, developed by researchers at Penn State University, makes use of a protein that binds to REEs and could be used to help develop domestic supplies of these metals. Rare earth metals are used in technologies such as smart phones, electric car batteries and energy-efficient lighting. A paper describing the sensor was published in American Chemical Society.
