Technical applications

- Permanent magnets:
- cobalt based: SmCo5, Sm2Co17

- SmCo5(BH)max 200 kJ/m3
- Sm2Co17 240 kJ/m3
- - very expensive
- iron based: Nd-Fe-B
- - low Curie points, TC
- - high energy product at RT
- (BH)max 360 kJ/m3
- - high decrease of Energy Product with T
- T<100 oC
- - low cost

- Directions of researches: nanocrystalline systems
- iron based with rare-earths
- iron based without rare-earth

- Iron based magnets with rare-earth
- R-Fe system
- RFe2, RFe3, R6Fe23, R2Fe17
- no RFe5 phases are formed
- R2Fe17
- Low Curie temperatures, Tc < 477 K for Gd2F17
- High magnetization MFe2.1-2.2 B/atom
- Planar anisotropy
- Rombohedral structure: space group
- Sm:6c, Fe:6c, 9d, 18f, 18h
- different local environments
- Increase Tcvalues by:
- replacement of iron involved in negative exchange inteactions
- increase volume: interstitial atoms (C,N)
- Uniaxial anisotropy

Fe mainly localized magnetic behaviour

- Intrinsic magnetic properties
- Magnetic measurements: H ≤ 9T T≥4.2 K
- initial magnetization curves
- - inflection typical for pinning effects coherent precipitates with matrix
- impede the motion of domain walls
- Band structure calculations: LMTO-LDA method
- MSm=-0.66 B/atom
- MFe(6c) > MFe(18h) MFe(18f) > MFe(9d)
- Mean magnetic moment of Fe in field of 9T
- increases with Si content
- Noncarbonated:1.50 B (y=0.25); 1.75 (y=1.0)
- Carbonated:1.88B (y=0.25); 1.97 (y=1.0)
- Asymmetric filling of Fe 3d band by Si3p electrons

- Mössbauer effect studies
- SmFe9-xSixC P6/mmm type structure
- Analysis of spectra
- local environment
- relationship between isomer shift, δ, and WSC volumes
- x = 1.0 WSC volume in (Å3)
- Sm1a (33.96); Fe2e (19.87); Fe3g (13.45); Fe6l (13.39)
- Larger isomer shifts=larger WSC volumes
- Statistical occupation of Si in the 3g site and random distribution in the 2e dumbbell atoms have been simulated by using an appropriate P6/mmm subgroup, P1 with a’=3a, b’=3a, c’=2c

- Technical parameters
- Uniaxial anisotropy is induced in1:9 phase
- 2:17 phase

- Coercive fields SmFe9-xSixC
- X = 0.25Hc=1.2 MA/mTa=750 oC
- x = 0.50Hc = 1.04MA/mTa=800 oC
- The maximum in Hc values:
- Too low Ta hinders the complete solid-state reaction for forming a perfect metastable phase responsible for magnetic hardening
- Increasing Tc
- - number of surface defects of hexagonal P6/mmm phase is reduced Hc
- - the domain size increases Hc
