Project

Nd-Fe-B Permanent Magnets

Abstract

This project investigates how microstructural features and composition affect the magnet properties of Nd-Fe-B permanent magnets. Nd-Fe-B magnets have the highest energy product of any magnetic material (512 kJ m3) and are widely used in wind turbine generators.

The composition of the Nd-rich phase between the Nd2Fe14B grains is thought to play a key role in the magnetic properties of the material, but there is still a lot not known about it.

Using a combination of SEM techniques and finite element modelling this project aims to study how changes to the microstructure and composition of the Nd-rich phase effects the overall magnetic properties of the material
