    Abstract

    Magnetic domain structures in Fe73.5Si13.5B 9Nb3Cu1 alloys annealed at different temperatures have been observed in situ under external magnetic fields by electron holography. Under a weak magnetic field of less than several A/m, a typical magnetization process of the high permeability material is observed in the specimen annealed at 823 K consisting of the bcc Fe-Si nanocrystalline and the amorphous matrix phase. On the other hand, in the specimen annealed at 973 K consisting of large Fe-Si grains and Fe-B compounds, many domain walls are observed at the boundaries between Fe-Si grains and also between Fe-B grains. Under a strong magnetic field of more than several kA/m, domain walls are observed only between Fe-B grains. The result indicates that the boundaries between Fe-B grains act as stronger pinning sites of domain walls than the boundaries between Fe-Si grains and those between Fe-Si and Fe-B grains in the Fe73.5Si13.5B9Nb3Cu1 alloy annealed at 973 K.
