Since Alnico alloys are known as nanostructured metallic magnets, having a good corrosion and thermal stability, many
research are devoted to find a miniaturization solution of this kind of permanent magnets in order to gain magnetic properties
suitable to replace the permanent magnets containing critical elements, like Sm-Co and Nd-Fe-B permanent magnets, in the
devices that requires lower performances and not so expensive routes for processing.
The experiments consisted in preparation of ribbons samples from Alnico based alloy processed in an induction furnace. From
the obtained ingot, there where process ribbons by melt-spinning technique. The obtained ribbons where then heat-treated and
characterized through X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and vibrating sample magnetometer
(VSM). The coercivity of the as-spun ribbons was enhanced from 16.92 kA/m to 32.57 kA/m after heat treatment.
A squarness ratio of around 0.6 is due the minor crystalline phases and to the residual stress induced by the rapid solidification
process of the 2D structure of the ribbons, indicating a good candidate for radio-frequency identification (RFID), micro-electromechanical
systems (MEMS) and other applications such as microwave circulators.
