Thin-film magnets, composed of nanophase dispersed Nd2Fe14B and α-Fe have been synthesized by rf magnetron sputtering. With increasing α-Fe volume fraction VFe, the saturation magnetization increased linearly, while the coercivity decreased. Ferromagnetic resonance measurements were made by using a high-frequency and high-field ESR apparatus, which exhibited two absorption peaks. A model calculation of the resonance field was made for a simplified hard/soft two-sublattice system to analyze these results. Estimated values of the exchange-coupling constant are in good agreement with those deduced from micro-magnetic analysis of the magnetization curves.
