Low-field magnetization process and complex permeability of FeCoBSiTa wires coated with hard magnetic CoNi layer

  • S BÁEZ-PIMIENTOEmail author


Biphase wires consisting of a soft magnetic amorphous nucleus surrounded by a hard magnetic CoNi layer of variable thickness were obtained by means of rotating water-quenching method and subsequent electroplating technique. Magnetization processes for all the biphase wires were resolved in terms of reversible bulging of magnetic domains and spin rotation by means of complex permeability measurements within the frequency range of 10 Hz–13 MHz. Results are interpreted in terms of CoNi layer effect on the magnetic anisotropy of the soft core.
