Determination of Texture Degree of NdFeB-Magnets by Means of Neutron Diffraction
Six samples of Nd-Fe-B-permanent magnets, distinguished in the texture degree, have been measured by neutron diffraction in the reflection and transmission regimes. The texture in the samples was formed by application of impulses of external magnetic field 0H = 4 T. Analysis of the obtained neutron diagrams by means of the Fullprof program allowed quantitative determination of the texture degree and conclusion to be made that the texture degree grows with an increase in numbers of magnetic field impulses.
