Title: Rapid Assessment of the Ce-Co-Fe-Cu System for Permanent Magnetic Applications

Here, this work focuses on the rapid synthesis and characterization of quaternary Ce(CoFeCu) 5 alloy libraries to assess their potential viability as permanent magnets. Arrays of bulk specimens with controlled compositions were synthesized via laser engineered net shaping (LENS) by feeding different ratios of alloy powders into a melt pool created by a laser. Based on the assessment of the magnetic properties of the LENS printed samples, arc-melted and cast ingots were prepared with varying Fe (5–20 at.%) and Co (60–45 at.%) compositions while maintaining constant Ce (16 at.%) and Cu (19 at.%) content. The evolution of the microstructure and phases with varying chemical compositions and their dependence on magnetic properties are analyzed in as-cast and heat-treated samples. In both the LENS printed and cast samples, we find the best magnetic properties correspond to a predominantly single-phase Ce(CoFeCu) 5 microstructure in which high coercivity ( H c > 10 kOe) can be achieved without any microstructural refinement.
