Novel Quasi trivalent Dual

The application of Nd-Fe-B magnet with substitution of Nd by cheap and abundant Ce elements is seriously limited due to the intrinsically inferior magnetic properties of Ce-Fe-B 1-3. Recently, dual-main-phase (DMP) sintered magnet was successfully developed 4, which allowed special distribution of heterogeneous main phases (Ce-rich and Nd-rich R2Fe14B main phases), contributing remarkably to balance the utilization of high-abundance rare earths and the performance. This work demonstrated a novel design of quasi-trivalent DMP Ce magnets using the strategy of two main phases with giant magnetic anisotropy energy gap (MAEG). The maximum energy product of DMP Ce magnet with 40% weight percentage of Ce over total rare earth is optimized to be 40.57 MGOe, as shown in Fig. 1, which is the energy-product record. The superior magnetic properties are closely corelated to the average valence of Ce. The average valence of Ce in the DMP magnets was quasi-trivalent, proved by XPS spectroscopy, as shown in Fig. 2, which was lower than that in the single-main-phase magnets. Furthermore, with an isostructural heterogenous configuration in the DMP magnets could manipulate electron migration and induce magnetic Ce3+ in the main phase, thereby improving the remanence. It was possible to control the Ce valence for the design of high-performance Ce magnets using main phases with diversity of MAEG. This would undoubtedly provide ideas for researching and developing new rare earth materials with a synergistic composition and structure. Compared with Nd-Fe-B magnets, the new quasi-trivalent DMP Ce magnets would save 30-40% Nd and remarkably reduce the production cost of magnets with much higher Ce content.
