Magnetic Susceptibility Disaccommodation and Mössbauer Effect in Microcrystalline Fe-Si Ribbons
Languages of publication
The magnetic susceptibility disaccommodation of the microcrystalline Fe-xSi (x=3, 5, 6.5, and 7.2 wt%) ribbons in the as-quenched state and after annealing at 1370 K for 1 h was investigated in the temperature range from 220 to 410 K. Simultaneously, the microstructure of those samples was studied using the Mössbauer spectroscopy. It is found that the isochronal disaccommodation curves may be decomposed into five elementary processes. Taking into account the results obtained from the Mössbauer spectra analysis, the relaxational process with activation energy equal to 0.84 eV may be considered as the Snoek relaxation. However, the relaxational processes of higher activation energy seem to be connected with jumps of C atoms in the vicinity of Fe atoms surrounded by 1, 2, 3, and 4 silicon atoms.
