Effect of Quenched Speed on Microwave Properties of the NdFeB Nanocomposites
The effect of the quenched speed on the microstructure and electromagnetic properties of melt spun Nd3Fe68Co18B11 nanocomposites was investigated. XRD spectra showed that only α-Fe phase can be obtained for both quenched samples. The complex permeability () and permittivity () within 2-18GHz were measured by vector network analysis. By virtue of quenched speed increased, the flake-like Nd3Fe68Co18B11 decreased the value of permittivity while that of permeability slightly changed. According to transmission line theory, the reflection loss was calculated. With thin matching thickness of 1.5mm, The Nd3Fe68Co18B11 composites realized the optimum reflection loss RL=-5.3dB at 3.6GHz and RL=-3.5dB at 3.9GHz for quenched speed 30m/s and 20m/s, respectively. It showed that it is possible to obtain good microwave absorbing properties with appreciated quenched speed for as spun Nd-Fe-B nanocomposites.
