Abstract:

In the past few years, considerable research has been conducted on binary and ternary alloy systems of the 3d transition elements with metals of the rare-earth group elements with nuclear charge 21, 39 and 57 through 71. These studies have revealed many new ferro- and ferrimagnetic substances. The most impressive of these new alloys are those based on the hexagonal intermetallic cobalt rare-earth RE compounds Co5RE. In this paper, the authors present new designs which use these materials in the development of a compact electronically tunable high field dc magnet for use in microwave filters and power limiters as well as in the design of power generators for use in artillery fuzing applications.
