Nanocrystalline Soft Magnetic Cores in Applications


Article Preview

Finemet type materials show extremely soft magnetic behavior with excellent and in wide range on-demand variable macroscopic parameters [1]. Requirements for the most important magnetic parameters (e.g. permeability, coercitive force, saturation, loss) are determined by the targeted applications. We report results on the optimization of crystallization treatments and parameter tailoring by magnetic field induced anisotropy. As compared to the most widely used magnetic materials our samples have parameters of real measure of excellence.
