  • Soft magnetic nanocomposites variants of FeCo-based (HTX002) alloys (Fe65Co35)(81+x)B12Nb4-xSi2Cu1, exhibiting high inductions (up to 1.9 T), low losses, and high temperature stability are studied for high frequency inductors and current sensors. For alloys with x 0, 1, 1.5, 2, and 3, we report field induced anisotropy, K-U, after annealing at temperatures of 340-450 degrees C for 1 h in a 2 T transverse magnetic field. The anisotropy field, H-K, measured by AC permeametry on toroidal cores, and by first order reversal curves on square sections of ribbon, decreases with annealing temperature and saturates at high annealing temperatures suggesting a nanostructuremore » related anisotropy mechanism in which the amorphous phase exhibits a higher H-K than the crystalline phase. A high saturation induction nanocrystalline phase and high H-K amorphous phase were achieved by low temperature annealing resulting in a value of K-U exceeding 14 X 10(3) erg/cm(3), more than twice that reported previously for Fe-rich amorphous and nanocomposite alloys.

  • A unique class of nanocomposites containing organoclays modified with catalytically active transition metal ions (TMI) and ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers was prepared. The morphology, thermal and rheological properties of these nanocomposites were studied by thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy, X-ray scattering/diffraction and oscillatory shear rheometry. TMI-modified organoclays were thought to possess pillaring of multivalent TMI in the interlayer silicate gallery, leading to a notable reduction of the interlayer d-spacing. The resulting nanocomposites exhibited significantly improved thermal stability and fire retardation properties, but similar morphology (i.e., an intercalated-exfoliated structure) andmore » rheological properties comparable with EVA nanocomposites containing unmodified organoclays. It appears that the compressed organic component in the TMI-modified organoclay can still facilitate the intercalation/exfoliation processes of polymer molecules, especially under extensive shearing conditions. The improved fire retardation in nanocomposites with TMI-modified organoclays can be attributed to enhanced carbonaceous char formation during combustion, i.e., charring promoted by the presence of catalytically active TMI.« less
  • Compositional dependence of saturation magnetization, magnetostriction and creep-induced magnetic anisotropy is investigated in amorphous (Fe{sub 1{minus}x}Co{sub x}){sub 85}B{sub 15} alloys. A close correlation of the three quantities was found. An anomaly centered at x = 0.25 may indicate chemical short-range order of the Fe{sub 3}Co type in this concentration range. An explanation of the creep-induced anisotropy behavior based on the bond-orientational anisotropy model is presented. It takes into account both the short-range ordering in the shear centers and medium-range deformations of their surroundings.
  • A method is reported for the in situ synthesis and subsequent study of metal cluster ions using Fourier transform mass spectrometry-collision induced dissociation (FTMS-CID). The method, which promises to greatly extend the variety and size of metal clusters now accessible by electron impact and multiphoton ionization, was described for FeCo/sup +/ with use of a prototype Nicolet FTMS-1000 Fourier transform mass spectrometer equipped with laser ionization. The method appears to be general with NiFe/sup +/, CuFe/sup +/, VFe/sup +/, and RhFe/sup +/ obtained from reactions of Ni/sup +/, Cu/sup +/, V/sup +/, and Rh/sup +/ w
  • FeCo/sub 2//sup +/ is more reactive than dimer ions, FeCo/sup +/ and Co/sub 2//sup +/, with propane, butane, 2-methlybutane, pentane, 2-methylpropane, hexane. The reactions occur by collision induced dissociation. The triatomic cation inserts across a C-H bond resulting in the elimination of hydrogen. Further dehydrogenation, rearrangements, or cleavage of the framework may occur. As an example, FeCo/sub 2/C/sub 4/H/sub 6//sup +/ formed from butane generates FeCo/sub 2/C/sub 4/H/sub 4//sup +/, FeCo/sub 2/C/sub 4/H/sub 2//sup +/ and FeCo/sub 2/C/sub 2/H/sub 2//sup +/ upon collisional activation in low efficiency with FeCo/sub 2//sup +/ observed at high kinetic energy. These studies were monitoredmore » by a prototype Nicolet FTMS-1000 Fourier transform mass spectrometer equipped with laser for ionization purposes. 22 references, 1 table.« less
