Praseodymium Fluoride, is the main raw materials for making Praseodymium Metal, and also applied in colour glasses and enamels; when mixed with certain other materials, Praseodymium produces an intense clean yellow colour in glass. Praseodymium is present in the rare earth mixture whose Fluoride forms the core of carbon arc lights which are used in the motion picture industry for studio lighting and projector lights. Doping Praseodymium in Fluoride glass allows it to be used as a single mode fiber optical amplifier.
