Texture in Nd-Fe-B Alloys Produced by Rapid Solidification


The texture and microstructure of melt-spun ribbons was studied using X-ray diffraction, pole figures and SEM. At constant wheel speed, the nozzle diameter affects the quenching conditions. The observed changes were responsible for a drastic variation of the strength of texture through the thickness of the specimens, and also for significant differences in the microstructure. We have demonstrated that the observed differences in the texture are related to the grain size and indicate that there is a relationship between the growth rate of a grain and its orientation.
