Nanocrystallization of Fe-Based Amorphous Alloys Fe73.5Cu1Nb3Si13.5B9 by Continuous CO2 Laser Overlapping Irradiation
Continuous CO2 laser irradiation is exploited to realize nanocrystallization of Fe based amorphous alloys Fe73.5Cu1Nb3Si13.5B9 by overlapping of the heated areas, and to get homogeneous ultrafine grains of about 10nm with a bcc α-Fe(Si) structure, which is the foundation of the excellent soft magnetic property. X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy(TEM) are used for microstructure analysis and observation, and the results show that irradiation power of 71w~99w gives the heat shock to the transformation from the metastable amorphous state to crystallized state, and proper time of about 20~30 seconds is necessary for optimum microstructure and soft magnetic properties.
