An attempt to discover the structure peculiarities giving rise to induced magnetic anisotropy in a finemet subjected to thermomechanical or thermomagnetic treatment has been undertaken. Grain size, internal stresses and texture in FeCuNbSiB ribbons were investigated. It was concluded that the induced magnetic anisotropy must have another reason e.g., directional ordering of Si atoms.
