Title: Soft magnetic powder-core composites of Fe{sub 90}Zr{sub 7}B{sub 3} and Fe{sub 49}Co{sub 21}Al{sub 5}Ga{sub 2}P{sub 9.65}C{sub 5.75}B{sub 4.6}Si{sub 3} alloys

Abstract

Amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys in ribbon form exhibit excellent soft magnetic properties, but their forms are limited to tape wound cores. Complex shapes require the implementation of a powder metallurgical approach resulting in reduced permeabilities. The present study investigates Fe-based Fe{sub 90}Zr{sub 7}B{sub 3} (C1) and Fe{sub 49}Co{sub 21}Al{sub 5}Ga{sub 2}P{sub 9.65}C{sub 5.75}B{sub 4.6}Si{sub 3} (C2) melt-spun ribbons as precursors for compacted powder cores. Single-roller melt spinning of C1 produced partially crystallized structures while C2 resulted in amorphous ribbons. Annealing studies were carried out based on the crystallization temperatures of various phases extracted from M(T) measurements. In ribbon form and under optimum annealing conditions, C1 revealed a 1.88 T saturation flux density (B{sub s}) and 44 A/m coercivity (H{sub c}), while C2 exhibited a B{sub s} of 0.78 T and H{sub c} of 2.4 A/m.
