Magnetic coating thickness influence on the texture in metal particle systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

The magnetic characterization of four experimental advanced double-coated MP tapes with different magnetic coating thickness has been completed. Although standard vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) measurements show very similar characteristics such as coercivity, squareness and orientation ratio (OR), alternative measurements show distinct differences in addition to their magnetic thickness. The in-plane distribution of easy axes (EAD) measured using a bi-axial VSM, show that the distribution width increased as the magnetic coating thickness decreased. A theoretical relation between OR and EAD was used to determine the out-of-plane distribution width. This was found to be narrower than the in-plane equivalent, as expected. The out-of-plane distribution width decreased as the magnetic thickness decreases, contrary to the in-plane variation.
