Title: Positive temperature coefficient of coercivity in Sm{sub 1−x}Dy{sub x}(Co{sub 0.695}Fe{sub 0.2}Cu{sub 0.08}Zr{sub 0.025}){sub 7.2} magnets with spin-reorientation-transition cell boundary phases

Positive temperature coefficients of coercivity are first obtained in the series of Sm{sub 1−x}Dy{sub x} (Co{sub 0.695}Fe{sub 0.2}Cu{sub 0.08}Zr{sub 0.025}){sub 7.2} magnets. The temperature range with a positive temperature coefficient of coercivity is gradually moving to higher temperature with the increase of x. Thermal magnetic analysis shows a spin reorientation transition of cell boundary phase in these magnets. It is interesting to find the abnormal coercivity is controlled by the spin-reorientation-transition cell boundary phases, and the spin reorientation temperature of cell boundary phase is consisted with the start point of the temperature range with abnormal behavior. The different temperature coefficients are discussed in terms of a nucleation model.
