General sample preparation crystal structure and microstructure

  • Permanent magnets:

  • cobalt based: SmCo5, Sm2Co17

  • - high Curie temperatures

  • - good energy product

  • 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

  • Curie temperature: effect of Si

  • Tc increases by Si substitution in noncarbonated samples

  • Tc decreases in carbonated sample

  • Volume effects:

  • 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

  • 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

General sample preparation crystal structure and microstructure

  • 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
