Simulation of the Diameters, Length and Content Effect on the Magnetic Properties of Glass-Coated Magnetic Alloy Microwires


Article Preview

The microwave permeability of glass-coated magnetic alloy microwires / dielectric composite was investigated by apparent permeability linked with intrinsic permeability calculated based on Landau-Lifshitz function. The effect of diameter, length and microwires content on the composite effective permeability was simulated. The simulated results show that the complex permeability decreases with the increase of the microwires diameter and the wire content in the composite. The microwave magnetic resonance frequency increase distinctly with the lengthening of the glass-coated microwires. The full width at half maximum of the ferromagnetic resonance peak increases with the lengthening of the microwires and the decrease of the wire content.
