Lake Shore’s Soft Magnetic Materials and Related Applications

When it comes to today’s latest developments in magnetics materials research, magnetics expert Dr. Cosmin Radu and Lake Shore Cryotonics, Inc. shared new research at the Joint European Magnetics Symposium (JEMS) 2012, September 9-12 at the Niccolo Paganini Auditorium & Congress Centre in Parma, Italy.  “We’re thrilled to exhibit at JEMS and to share our poster presentation on the latest structural and magnetic properties of (Fe,Co) SiBNb ribbons prepared by rapid solidification,” said Dr. Radu.  The poster presentation was held on Monday, September 10 in the “Soft magnetic materials and related applications” session.

Research for this poster presentation was performed by the Instituto Nazionale Di Ricerca Metrologica in Italy in conjunction with Lake Shore. FeSiB alloys are historically known to exhibit good soft magnetic properties and high saturation magnetization. This study found that increasing the Nb percentage in FeSiB alloys increased efficiency for power applications by reducing the power losses. The study also found that increasing the Co percentage increased the temperature to which the alloys could be heated without losing their magnetic properties.

Lake Shore featured its comprehensive line of materials characterization systems and magnetic instruments and sensors. Materials characterization systems featured include vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) systems used to characterize the DC magnetic properties of materials as a function of magnetic field, temperature, and time, Hall effect measurement systems (HMS) for measuring electronic transport properties, and cryogenic probe stations with optional magnet-field configurations providing an environment for user-defined measurement applications.

Dr. Radu and his Lake Shore technical sales colleagues were on hand at the exhibit and answered customer questions concerning Lake Shore systems, instruments and sensor features, as well as applications questions.
