Abstract

The magnetic decoupling and the transformation temperatures of metastable nanophases have been investigated as a function of annealing temperature in partially crystallized Fe73.5Si13.5B9Nb3Cu1 (Finemet) and Fe92-xBxZr7-yNbyCu1, with x = 2,4,6,8,10,12 and y = 0, 3.5 at% (Nanoperm) type nanostructured soft magnetic alloys. By comparative initial permeability (μi) and low field dc magnetization (Ms) measurements it is demonstrated that the nanograins show a superferro-superpara- and a superpara-para-magnetic transition at high temperatures, between the Curie points belonging to the starting amorphous and equilibrium bcc phases respectively, in both type of nanocrystalline alloys. We find that these transition temperatures depend on the annealing conditions.
