Abstract:

The magnetic properties of amorphous metals are examined relative to changes in composition, processing, and heat treatment of amorphous transition metal-metalloid alloys. The transition metals examined were iron and iron plus nickel. These were alloyed with the metalloids boron, phosphorous, and carbon. Significant effects of alloy variation were observed on magnetic properties and on the crystallization and stress relief of these materials. Magnetic ageing was also observed and is interpreted in terms of a new mechanism. Author
