Effect of Pulsed Magnetic Field Treatment on the Magnetic Properties of the Fe-Nd-Al-B Alloys Prepared by Suction Casting
The magnetic properties of the (Fe0.53Nd0.37Al0.10)96B4 bulk amorphous alloys annealed in the temperature range of 293-623K for 30 min with and without an external pulsed magnetic field of 5T were studied. The results reveal that the remanence and coercivity of the samples are obviously improved with a pulsed magnetic field when annealed below the Curie temperature of the alloy. The increment of remanence reaches 25.9% for the sample annealed at 523K with a pulsed magnetic field, because of the enhancement of exchange coupling roles between the soft and hard magnetic phases. It provides a new way to improve the magnetic properties of the bulk amorphous alloys produced by pulsed magnetic annealing at temperatures below the Curie point of the alloys.
