Abstract

The substitution effect of Nd for Nb on the structure and magnetic properties of a Fe84Nb7B9 alloy has been investigated. The substitution of Nd causes the formation of Fe3B phase in the as-quenched state; Decrease the crystallization temperature and increase the Curie temperature of the amorphous phase. After annealing at an optimum temperature; The soft magnetic properties are improved by substitution of 0.05 to 0.4 at% Nd and Fe84Nb6.9Nd0.1B9 alloy exhibits the permeability (μ′) at 1kHz of 39000 and the coercivity (Hc) of 4.3 A/m.
