    Phase evolution and magnetic properties of (Nd0.95La0.05)(9.5 similar to 11)Febal.M2B10.5, where M=Cr, Ti, Mb, V, Mo, Zr, Hf, Ta, Mn or W, melt spun ribbons have been investigated. Almost all the alloy ribbons, except for (Nd0.95La0.05)(9.5)Fe78M2B10.5 (M=Mo and Mn), consist merely two magnetic phases, namely alpha-Fe and R2Fe14B, which display a better combination of H-i(c) and magnetic energy product. Remanence (B-r) and coercivity (H-i(c)) values in the range of 8.0 to 9.1 kG and 9.5 to 18.9 kOe, respectively, can be achieved. Among compositions studied, the Ti and W-substitutions were found to be most effective in increasing the Br and H-i(c), respectively. For a fixed refractory metal substitution, namely, M=Cr, Ti or Mb, an increase in the total rare earth concentration resulted in nanocomposites of small grain sizes and a high volume fraction of the R2Fe14B phase, leading to an increase in the magnetic properties.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 107-108. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (336KB)
    The demagnetization curves for the nanocrystalline Nd-Fe-B magnets of the stoichiometric composition were calculated by using the finite element technique of micromagnetism. The curve, especially H-i(c) become smaller with increase of N. The most small H-i(c) from a series of the curves along different field directions is closer to that for N=infinity. H-i(c) increases with increase of L, and are close or some what smaller than that the experimental values should be.

    Baozhi CUI, Xiaokai SUN, Wei LIU, Zhidong ZHANG, Dianyu GENG, Xinguo ZHAO
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 118-120. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (543KB)
    The effect of a partial substitution of Zr, Ga, Co and Ga, Co, Ga and Zr, respectively for Fe on the structure and magnetic properties of Nd8.4Fe87.1B4.5 alloy prepared by mechanical alloying has been studied in detail. It has been shown that, intrinsic coercivity mu(o)H(c), and maximum magnetic energy product (BH)(max) increase for only Zr or Ga-containing samples, which is mainly due to the refinement of soft grains. The combined addition of Co and Ga is less effective for improving mu(o)H(c) and (BH)(max) than the respective addition of Co or Ga, which may be due to the formation of CsCl-type CoGa. mu(o)H(c) and (BH)(max) for combined Co, Ga, Zr-added alloy are higher than those for the combined Co, Ga-added alloy but lower than those for only Zr-containing alloy.

    Xinguo ZHAO, Zhidong ZHANG, Zhijun GUO, Wei LIU, Dianyu GENG, Baozhi CUI
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 123-124. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (414KB)
    The alloy with nominal composition Sm-2(Fe0.94Ti0.06)(l7) is prepared by are-melting, hydrogenation and nitrogenation processes. The Sm-2(Fe0.94Ti0.06)(17) alloy has a single phase of Sm-3(Fe, Ti)(29) with the Nd-3(Fe, Ti)(29)-type structure. The corresponding hydride phase with the same phase structure of the parent alloy was formed after a hydrogen decrepitation (HD) process at 300 degrees C. The hydrogenation at 800 degrees C mainly shows a HDDR process. The HD and nitrogenation at 500 degrees C result in increasing the Curie temperature of the alloy by 72 degrees C and by 158 degrees C due to lattice expansions, respectively. The anisotropic and isotropic Sm-3(Fe, Ti)(29)Ny magnets are obtained after HD, HDDR and the consequent nitrogenation, respectively. The optimum magnetic properties of Sm-3(Fe, Ti)(29)Ny powders achieved in the above two processes are: (i) B-r=0.82 T, H-i(c)=4.48 kA/cm, (BH)(max)=54.3 kJ/m(3), (ii) B-r=0.68 T, H-i(c)=8.14 kA/cm, (BH)(max)=66.4 kJ/m(3).

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 125-126. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (360KB)
    The structure and magnetic properties of SmyFe(100-1.5)yC(0.5y)(y=8 similar to 20) alloys prepared by mechanical alloying (MA) from Sm, Fe and graphite have been investigated systematically. In order to improve hard magnetic properties of the alloys prepared by mechanical alloying, a new method consisting of re-milling and re-annealing was developed. After being re-milled and re-annealed, the Curie temperature T-C of the Sm-Fe-C alloys changes. The T-C of 2:17 phase increases, whereas the T-C of 2:14:1 phase decreases. After being re-annealed at low temperatures, the grain sizes of hard phases are smaller than those in the alloys annealed at high temperatures. The effects of Co or Ti substitution for Fe are studied.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 137-140. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (713KB)
    A siliconizing process to manufacture 6.5% Si steel sheet has been developed. Electric components. such as transformers and reactors are made easily from 6.5% Si steel sheet. However, improved workability is desirable to increase the applications. Therefore the improvement of workability of 6.5% Si steel sheet was investigated, and the results were obtained as follows: (a) workability of 6.5% Si steel sheet is deteriorated by grain boundary oxidization, (b) grain boundary oxidization can be restrained by the addition of C. Workability and magnetic properties of 6.5% Si steel sheet with C addition are discussed. Furthermore, it was found that the workability of high Si steel sheet was improved remarkably by varying the Si content gradient along the thickness without deterioration of high frequency magnetic properties. This newly developed magnetic gradient high Si steel sheet is also discussed.

    K.J.Jang, S.J.Ahn, C.G.Kim, S.S. Thoon, S.C.Yu
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 141-142. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (309KB)
    We investigated the variation of permeability spectra and relaxation frequency in Go-based amorphous ribbon annealed by pulsed Nd:YAG laser at various annealing energy E-a. The complex permeability spectra varies sensitively with the annealing energy, where the spectra could be decomposed into two contributions from domain wall motion. mu(dw)(f) and rotational magnetization mu(rot)(f) by analyzing the measured spectra as a function of driving ac field amplitude. The magnitude of mu(dw)(f) and mu(rot)(f) in dc limit shows maximum at E-a = 176 mJ. The maximum relaxation frequency for rotational magnetization, determined by mu"(f) curve, is about 700 kHz at E-a=62 mJ but that for wall motion is about 26 kHz at 230 mJ. These variations reflect the increase of magnetic softness and microstructural change by the annealing.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 145-147. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (411KB)
    The mu(i)-T curves of the alloy Fe73.5CU1Nb3Si13.5B9 in the amorphous state and in the nanocrystalline state have been investigated. For comparison, u(i)-T curves of the other two kinds of typical soft magnetic alloys also have been measured. it was found that a sharp Hopkinson peak appeared at the Curie point for each amorphous and crystalline alloy but there was no Hopkinson peak for the nanocrystalline alloy at the Curie point of the residual amorphous phase. This phenomenon has been explained in terms of the characteristic temperature dependence of the effective magnetic anisotropy.

    Magnetic properties of Fe- and FeNi-based amorphous composite ribbons
    Wenzhi CHEN, Shaoxiong ZHOU, Jinchang CHEN
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 151-152. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (375KB)
    M-s-T curves and hysteresis loops were investigated for amorphous Fe78Si9B13, (FeNi)(78)(CrSiB)(22), their lap-wound-cores, and their composite ribbons made by two-chamber-crucible technique. The properties of the lap-wound cores of the two kinds of ribbons are similar. For the composite ribbons. the intrinsic properties are the average of the two alloys. Their technological properties, i.e., hysteresis loops, however, are no longer the average of the two alloys. Instead, they show some dramatic changes compared to the lap-wound-cores. Especially, the shape of the hysteresis loop of the composite ribbon cores is largely different from that of lap-wound-cores. The reason for the difference is supposed to be internal stress induced from cooling after annealing.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 155-156. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (423KB)
    Commercial grain oriented silicon steel was cold rolled to thickness from 0.06 to 0.10 mm by cross shear rolling, then annealed in vacuum or a hydrogen atmosphere furnace. Deformation textures of the sheets were researched by ODF method and reverse pole figure quantitative analyses. The results indicate that: in the condition of the cross shear rolling, the deformation texture of roiled sheet is generally similar to that of conventional rolled sheet, however, the texture distribution through the thickness is asymmetrical. With mismatch speed ratio increasing, the amount of Goss texture increases, With reduction ratio increasing, the intensity of gamma-fiber becomes strong.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 157-158. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (358KB)
    The influence of alloy elements on de and ac magnetic properties of Fe79M2Si6B11C2(M is V, Mo or Cr) amorphous alloys was investigated. The variation law of the magnetic properties and the loss with the different elements was studied. The results show that the addition of V, Cr or Mo elements reduces the saturation magnetic induction in varying degrees. The addition of V element increases the permeability, decreases the coercivity and drops the loss. The addition of Cr and Mo reduces the permeability, and increases the coercivity.

    Deren LI, Zhichao LU, Guoqing LI, Ze XIANYU
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 165-166. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (379KB)
    The magnetoresistance effect and magnetic properties in amorphous and nanocrystalline Fe(Cu, Nb)-Si-B ribbons have been investigated. It was observed that the anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) of nanocrystalline alloy is much smaller than that of amorphous alloy, indicating that the anisotropy of nanocrystalline alloy becomes smaller after crystallizing. and the smallest AMR is coincident with the excellent soft magnetic characteristics. It is believed that the smaller magnetic crystalline anisotropy is the origin of the excellent soft magnetic characteristics of nanocrystalline alloy.

    K.Fukamichi, A.Fujita
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 167-171. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (991KB)
    A first-order itinerant electron metamagnetic (IEM) transition above the Curie temperature T-C for ferromagnetic La(FexSi1-x)(13) compounds has been confirmed by applying magnetic field. The Volume change just above T-C for x=0.88 is huge of about 1.5%, which is caused by a large magnetic moment induced by the IEM transition. These compounds have a possibility for practical applications as giant magnetostrictive materials. Pronounced Invar effects bring about a negative thermal expansion below T-C, closely correlated with the negative mode-mode coupling among spin fluctuations.

    Structure and magnetostriction of Dy1-xPrxFe2 (0 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 0.5), Dy0.6Pr0.4(Fe1-yTy)(2) (0 less than or equal to y less than or equal to 0.6), and Tb1-zPrz(Fe0.4Co0.6)(2) (0 less than or equal to z less than or equal to 1.0) alloys (T=Co, Ni) have been investigated. It is found that the matrix of the alloys Dy1-xPrxFe2 is a single phase (Dy, Pr)Fe-2 with MgCu2-type structure and the second phase is (Dy, Pr)Fe-3 when x less than or equal to 0.2. The amount of (Dy, Pr)Fe-3 phase increases with increasing Pr content and becomes the main phase when x=0.4. The matrix of Dy1-xPrxFe2 is found to be the (Dy, Pr)(2)Fe-17 phase with Th2Zn17-type structure when x=0.5. It is found that the amount of the cubic Laves phase (Dy, Pr)(Fe, Co)(2) in the Dy0.6Pr0.4(Fe1-yCoy)(2) increases with increasing Co concentration when 0 less than or equal to y less than or equal to 0.6. The substitution of Ni for Fe is nearly not favorable for the formation of the cubic Laves phase (Dy, Pr)(Fe, Ni)(2) in (Dy1-xPrx)Fe-2. The matrix of (Tb1-zPrz)(Fe0.4Co0.6)(2) is a (Tb, Pr)(Fe, Co)(2) phase with the MgCu2-type cubic Laves structure and a second phase of small amount is (Tb, Pr)(Fe, Co)(3) phase when z less than or equal to 0.2, z=0.5 and 1.0.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (385KB)
    The structure and magnetostriction of R0.5Pr0.5Fex, (R = Dy0.7Tb0.3, 1.10 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 1.85) alloys were investigated. It was found that the matrix of are-melting R0.5Pr0.5Fex, alloys is the (Dy, Tb, Pr) Fe-2 phase with the MgCu2-type cubic structure and the second phase is rare earth-rich phase when x<1.25. In the range of 1.40 less than or equal to x<1.55, the second phase is (Dy, Tb, Pr)Fe-3 and it becomes the main phase when x >1.55. The crystalline structure of mechanically grinding R0.5Pr0.5Fex, alloys is similar to that of the are-melted alloys. The magnetostriction of the alloys increases with increasing Fe content when x less than or equal to 1.25 and decreases when x>1.25.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (387KB)
    The structural and magnetostrictive properties of (CexTb1-x)(0.5)Pr0.5Fe2 were investigated. Ce-concentration must exceed x=0.6 in order to obtain the pure Laves phase. The magnetostriction and anisotropy constant increase with the Tb-content in this system. The anisotropy value of PrFe2 is lower than that of isostructural DyFe2. From the X-ray step-scanned data we found that lambda(111) Of PrFe2 is 1310x10(-6). A large increase of magnetostriction can be observed under a small prestress of 6 MPa for Ce0.5Pr0.5Fe2.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 183-185. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (597KB)
    Results on the magneto-optical investigation of near-surface micromagnetic structure (MMS) of Co69Fe4Si12B15 amorphous wires 10 similar to 50 mu m in diameter are presented. The wires were prepared by the rapid solidification technique. The magnetic field H was applied along or perpendicular to the wire length. By scanning the light spot of 1 mu m-diameter along the wire length, distributions of magnetization components (both parallel and perpendicular to the applied magnetic field) and also local hysteresis characteristics of the wires were measured. It was experimentally established that owing to the compressive stresses from quenching coupled with negative magnetostriction of Go-rich amorphous materials, the examined microwires have a circumferential magnetic anisotropy. In consequence, there are the near-surface alternate left- and right-handled circular domains in these samples. The dependencies of the circular domain width on the wire diameter and length were found. It was discovered that in the axial magnetic field local hysteresis loops are unhysteretic. It was proved that in this case the dominant mechanism of the wire magnetization reversal is rotation of local magnetization vectors in circular domains.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 186-190. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (823KB)
    GMR effect of multilayers of bcc-Fe(M)(M=Co, Ni) alloy and Cu layers has been investigated. The maximum MR ratio is found at 1.1 nm Fe(Co) and 1.3 similar to 1.4 nm Cu layer thickness in [Fe(Co)/Cu], and at 1.6 nm Fe(Ni) and 1.4 nm Cu layer thickness in [Fe(Ni)/Cu]. Under the optimum annealing condition, the MR ratio increases up to 50% and 38% for Fe(Co) and Fe(Ni) systems, respectively. The origin of the increase of GMR is discussed, taking the progress of preferred orientation of Fe(Co)[100] or Fe(Ni)[100] by annealing into account.

    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 191-194. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (645KB)
    The Fe3O4/Fe/Fe3O4 (MIM) tri-layer films (200 nm/12 similar to 93 nm/200 nm) were prepared on Si(100) by DC-magnetron reactive-sputtering followed by air- or vacuum-annealing at 280 similar to 400 degrees C for 1.5 h, respectively. Magnetic properties and phases under different sandwich and annealing conditions were studied. In MIM structure, the incorporation of the interlayer iron does increase the magnetization measured under 8 kOe (M-8K), but reduce coercivity (H-c). The H-c of as-deposited films decreases from 354 Oe to 74 Oe, while M-8K increases from 254 to 392 emu/cc. By annealing in air, the whole MIM tri-layer film becomes gamma-Fe2O3 H-c is about 550 Oe and M-8K is around 250 emu/cc. The coercivity mechanism of as-deposited and annealed MIM trilayer films belongs to domain-wall pinning type. delta M plots show that when the interlayer Fe thickness is 12 nm, the Fe and Fe3O4 layers are decoupled in the as-deposited and annealed states, while it is coupled in the as deposited state when the Fe thickness increases to 23 nm. Vacuum annealing of the MIM films leads to increase in both coercivity and magnetization, and to enhance the exchange coupling between layers.

    Hollglie SHEN, Tie LI, Qinwo SHEN, Qiang PAN, Shichang ZOU
    J. Mater. Sci. Technol., 2000, 16 (02): 195-196. 
    Abstract   HTML   PDF (391KB)
    The magnetic and structural properties in Co/Cu/Co sandwiches with Ni and Cr buffer layers were investigated. It was found that the coercivity in Ni layer buffered samples decreases with increasing Ni layer thickness, while that in Cr layer buffered ones increases with increasing Cr layer thickness, leading to a large difference in field sensitivity of their giant magnetoresistance (GMR) properties. X-ray diffraction and high resolution transmission electron microscope images exhibited that there is a strong fee (111) texture in the samples with Ni buffer layer. But there are only randomly oriented polycrystalline grains in Cr buffered sandwiches. According to atomic force microscope topography, the surface roughness of Cr buffered sandwiches is smaller than that of Ni buffered ones. It is demonstrated that buffer layer influences both magnetic and structural properties in Co/Cu/Co sandwiches as well as their GMR characteristics.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (376KB)
    The transverse permeability ratio (TPR) and longitudinal permeability ratio (LPR) as a function of an external field of mumetal films have been investigated in conjunction with the magnetic properties. The mumetal films were prepared by the R.F.magnetron sputtering method in Ar atmosphere. The LPR curve shows the single peak pattern, and the TPR curve shows the double peak pattern indicating the existence of the magnetic anisotropy effect. The magnitude of the incremental permeability are strongly depended on the magnetic softness. The large changes of LPR and TPR in low external fields can be useful for the evaluation of the magnetic softness.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (972KB)
    The performance of a 3-phase 6-pole 400 W inverter-drive induction motor was investigated using a variety of non-oriented electrical steels for stator core at PWM inverter fundamental wave frequencies of 30 to 300 Hz. There existed an optimum Si content of the material depending on the tooth flux density. Both reduction of material thickness and stress-relief annealing of the stator core improved the motor efficiency. The influence of Si content on the efficiency was small at lower PWM frequencies, while at higher frequencies the motor efficiency increased with increasing Si content. The Cu loss W-c increased and the Fe loss W-i counteractively decreased with increasing Si content at lower frequencies, while at higher frequencies W-i had dominant effect on the efficiency. Newly developed materials RMA, having lower Fe tosses after stress-relief annealing and higher flux densities with lower Si contents, showed motor efficiencies superior to conventional JIS grade materials with comparable Fe losses.

    Abstract   HTML   PDF (372KB)
    We present a theoretic model to calculate skin depths and eddy-current power losses for a magnetic position sensor. Eddy-current, arised from the operation of an alternating-current excitation, induces secondary currents and fields between magnetic material and magnetic position sensor. In this paper, a magnetic position sensor system is simplified to be an outer-winding toil along the axial direction of a low carbon steel bar. The analytical model is derived from basic field and circuit theory considering a linear approximation for a nonlinear permeability. Thus the skin depths and eddy-current power losses from the model in eddy-current modeling techniques at various frequencies of an excited current source can be calculated. The proposed configuration is capable of predicting the skin depths and eddy-current power losses for a magnetic position sensor and has a consistence with experiments.
