Absrrucr-The high remanence and intrinsic coercivity of Nd-Fe-B magnets make them desirable for use in accelerators. Use in the radiation environment of an accelerator requires that the sensitivity of these magnets to radiation be determined and the mechanisms responsible for degradation be understood. Small magnets were irradiated at the Omega West Reactor in a fast neutron flus of 4 X 10” n/cm* s at a temperature of 350 K (77°C). At various time intervals during the irradiation, samples were… CONTINUE READING
