Phase Transformations in Amorphous Bilayer Ribbons
Bilayer ribbons were prepared by rapid quenching from the melt using a double-nozzle technique. The composition of the layers was selected from the Fe/Co-Si-B and Fe-Cu-Nb-Si-B systems, respectively. Ribbons with typical thickness of 45-50 microns and width of 6 mm and 10 mm exhibited amorphous structure of both layers in as-quenched state. Temperature dependencies of electrical resistivity, dilatation and magnetization have been investigated in the amorphous state and during crystallization of both layers, which take place at different temperatures. The results combined with investigation of the structures formed in each layer and at the layer interface were compared to those of single-layer ribbons having the compositions of each layer, respectively.
