A partial substitution such as Ce in SmCo 5 could be a brilliant way to improve the magnetic performance, because it will introduce strain in the structure and breaks the lattice symmetry in a way that enhances the contribution of the Co atoms to magnetocrystalline anisotropy. However, Ce substitutions, which are benefit to improve the magnetocrystalline anisotropy, are detrimental to enhance the Curie temperature ( T C ). With the requirements of wide operating temperature range of magnetic…

It is found that the inter-phase exchange coupling strength, rotating behavior and magnetocrystalline anisotropy strongly depend on the atomic thickness of the SmCo 5 and Sm 2 Co 17 phase.
Boron interstitials in ordered phases of Fe-Pd binary alloys: A first principle study
Abstract Magnetic properties of L10-type tetragonal FePd, L12-type cubic FePd3, CuZr2-type tetragonal FePd2 and Pt5Ga3-type orthorhombic Fe3Pd5 binary alloys with interstitial boron doping are
Enhanced ferromagnetism in cylindrically confined MnAs nanocrystals embedded in wurtzite GaAs nanowire shells.
A unique combination of two types of hexagonal lattices provides possibility of attaining quasi-hydrostatic tensile strain in MnAs (impossible otherwise), leading to the substantial ferromagnetic phase transition temperature increase in this compound.


Pushing the limits of magnetic anisotropy in the Sm-Co system.
Materials based on the Sm-Co system exhibit remarkable magnetic performance due to their high Curie temperature, large saturation magnetization, and strong magnetic anisotropy, which are the result
Cobalt magnetism in RCo5-intermetallics: Onset of 3d magnetism and magnetocrystalline anisotropy (r=rare earth or Th)
Abstract In the RCo 5 compounds with trivalent R atoms, cobalt magnetism is well established. When R atoms are tetravalent (Th, Ce), the onset of 3d magnetism occurs through metamagnetism of
Discovery of a strain-stabilised smectic electronic order in LiFeAs
Using low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy, this work image a strain-stabilized smectic electronic order in LiFeAs with both broken rotational symmetry and reduced translational symmetry, which may lead to dramatic modification in the electronic states in strong correlated materials.
Calculation of magnetic anisotropy energy inSmCo5
SmCo 5 is an important hard magnetic material, due to its large magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE). We have studied the magnetic properties of SmCo 5 using density functional theory (DFT) calculations
A Family of New Cobalt‐Base Permanent Magnet Materials
The magnetocrystalline anisotropy of several intermetallic phases of the type RCo5 (R = Y, Ce, Pr, Sm, Y‐rich and Ce‐rich mischmetals) has been investigated, and it is concluded that these alloys are
Exchange interactions and Curie temperature of Y-Co compounds
In this paper, we study the effect of concentration on the magnetic properties of R-T compounds as the changes in concentration produce change in the local environment, Such a study has been carried
A new approach for improving exchange-spring magnets
It is demonstrated here that an already ideal exchange–spring magnet can be further improved by intermixing the interface. This is counter-intuitive to the general expectation that optimal
Valence state of cerium in the hexagonal CeM5 compounds with the transition metals
2014 The valence state of cerium in CeCo5, CeNi5, CeCu5 and the pseudo-binary Ce(Ni1-xCux)5 compounds has been studied by means of measurements of lattice parameters, magnetic properties and X-ray
The strain of CuO2 lattice: the second variable for the phase diagram of cuprate perovskites
We show the key role of the elastic local strain (or micro-strain) e of the CuO2 lattice in the phase diagram of cuprate superconductors. The superconducting critical temperature Tc(δ, e )i s shown
Calculated crystal-field parameters of SmCo5.
From a first-principles density-functional calculation of the charge distribution all crystalfield (CF) parameters for the 4f states at the Sm site in SmCos have been evaluated and DF calculations are found to yield the correct sign for all CF parameters, but to overestimate considerably the magnitude of the most essential second-order parameter, Az.
