|Abstract:||© 2017, The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and ASM International. Thermal stability, mechanism, and kinetics of thermally induced microstructural transformations and their effects on magnetic permeability of Fe72Si15B8V4Cu1 alloy with combined amorphous/nanocrystalline structure were studied. DTA curves revealed two separated thermally activated exothermic events in the temperature ranges from 740 K to 820 K (467 °C to 547 °C) and 870 K to 930 K (597 °C to 657 °C). Crystalline phases present in the as-prepared and thermally treated alloy samples were identified, and their microstructural parameters were determined using XRD, while, to gain further insight into the mechanism of microstructural transformations, AFM and SEM–EDS analyses were performed. Deconvolution of the complex DTA peak into individual steps was conducted, and, in correlation with the results of microstructural analysis, kinetic triplets corresponding to individual transformation steps were determined, allowing for the estimation of the lifetimes of the alloy at different temperatures. Magnetic permeability measurements showed that, in spite of the influence of microstructural transformations on magnetic properties of the alloy, the favorable magnetic properties are retained over relatively a wide temperature range.|
