ABSTRACT
Electromagnetic levitation was used to melt and solidify containerlessly Nd-Fe-B alloys. A method was developed to reduce and evaporate stable solid Nd oxides at the surface of the liquid samples. The oxides otherwise limit the undercoolability of the highly reactive Nd-based alloys. In such a way, undercoolings up to 150 K of the levitation processed samples were achieved. Owing to the large undercooling range, the intermetallic Nd[sub 2]Fe[sub 14]B[sub 1] phase with the hard magnetic properties was primarily crystallized at undercoolings exceeding 50 K. Solidification of the pro-peritectic γ-Fe with soft magnetic properties was successfully suppressed. At the largest undercoolings, a metastable phase, likely to be of the composition Nd[sub 2]Fe[sub 17]B[sub x] (x≈l) is primarily formed while the crystallization of Nd[sub 2]Fe[sub l4]B[sub 1] phase is followed up in a subsequent step.
