Title

Magnetocrystalline Anisotropy of (Nd₁₋ₓSmₓ)₂Fe₁₄B and (Nd₁₋ₓPrₓ)₂Fe₁₄B

Abstract

A spin reorientation appears at 140 K in Nd2Fe14B. In order to investigate the magnetic behavior of the rare earth sublattice, the magnetocrystalline anisotropy of (Nd1-xSmx)2Fe14B and (Nd1-xPrx)2Fe14B has been studied by X-ray and magnetic measurements. We find that the substitution of Nd with Sm results in an increasing spin reorientation temperature. A change in easy magnetization direction from the c-axis toward the basal plane is observed at room temperature in (Nd1-xSmx)2Fe14B compounds by increasing the Sm content, x. The effect of substitution of Nd withPr is reversed. © 1986.
