Researchers from Institute of Physics Provide Details of New Studies and Findings in the Area of Nanocrystals

June 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanocrystals. According to news reporting from Warsaw, Poland, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The less silicon, the more pronounced is the diversity between surfaces and ribbon interior of non-vacuum annealed Fe-Nb-Cu-B-Si nanocrystalline Finemets. The diversity significantly impacts material's magnetic properties particularly by engaging surface-created macroscopic forces in magnetoelastic interaction."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the Institute of Physics, "A medium-Si Finemet (10 at%) was investigated using several surface analysis methods and compared to standard Si-rich Finemet. Oxides were detected on the surfaces after non-vacuum annealing. No explicit contiguous oxide layer was revealed."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Surface crystallization is considered to be the direct source of the macroscopic forces."
