One attempt to improve core loss of electromagnetic machines is to utilize nanocrystalline alloys, which are predicted to have extremely soft magnetic properties. High magnetic saturation values and high Curie temperatures make iron-cobalt alloys attractive for such applications. In this work iron-cobalt-vanadium nanopowders were synthesized and compacted. The coated particles were characterized and examined in both the powder and compacted states. Higher than expected coercivities are reported and may be due to the inhomogeneous microstructure resulting from interactions with the vanadium.
