Thermal processing of materials in an external magnetic field is employed in order to produce a controllable uniaxial anisotropy in the series of soft magnetic Fe-based alloys. Of particular interest for this work are Fe-Co-Nb-B and Fe-Ni-Nb-B amorphous/nanocrystalline alloys as well as the advanced non-oriented silicon steels with low coercivity. The beneficial effects of heat treatment under magnetic field are discussed in terms of the improved magnetic softness and the possibility to tune the application-oriented properties of these alloys. Figs 5, Refs 18.
