This paper describes the effect of applied field on the magnetic properties of Sm-Fe-N thick films prepared by the aerosol deposition (AD) method. Applying magnetic fields of 0-0.19 T along the film plane during the AD method, the remanence measured in the direction parallel to the applied field increased with increasing the magnetic field. The maximum value of remanence was 0.54 T, which was 29% higher than that without the applied field (0.42 T). It is concluded that the c-axis of Sm-Fe-N AD films has a tendency to align along the magnetic field direction.
