Influence of B content substituting for Al on the magnetic properties of Nd60Fe30Al10-xBx
The Nd60Fe30Al10-xBx (x = 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) alloys were prepared by copper mold casting using arc-melting. Investigation shows that with increasing B content magnetization and remanence decrease while coercivity and Curie temperature increase. The hard magnetic properties are achieved not only in the amorphous state but also in partly crystallizing state. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
