Original Paper


This article is a brief review of new different ways to tailor the magnetic properties of amorphous ferromagnetic microwires of two types: glass-coated and glassless. Metallic core of the studied samples was manufactured from CoFe-, Co-, and CoFeNi-based alloys by quenching and drawing or by the Taylor-Ulitovsky methods. We tested the following options to tailor the magnetic properties: changing of the parameters of manufacturing process, annealing, magnetostatic interaction in the array of wires. For the first time, it was found that a system of Co-based microwires with nearly zero magnetostriction coefficient exhibits a step-like hysteresis loop. The same behavior was found for single microwires with compositions of Fe 77.5Si 7.5 B 15 and Fe 45Co 30Si 10 B 15 produced under certain conditions. The effect of stress-annealing was investigated for Fe 67.5Co 7.5 B 15Si 10, Fe 52.5Co 22.5 B 15Si 10, and Fe 37.5Co 37.5 B 15Si 10 glass-coated microwires.
