Li Y, Zhang W, Qi T. New soft magnetic Fe 25 Co 25 Ni 25 (P, C, B) 25 , Journal of Alloys and Compounds, 2017, 693: 25-31.
New Fe25Co25Ni25(P, C, B)25 high entropy bulk metallic glasses (HE-BMGs) with large supercooled liquid region (ΔTx) and excellent soft magnetic and mechanical properties were developed. Fully HE-BMG rods were successfully prepared by copper mold casting in the composition region of 7.5–12.5 at% P, 7.5–10 at% C, and 5–10 at% B, respectively. The HE-BMGs possess low glass transition temperature (Tg) of ∼672 K and large ΔTx of ∼56 K, which are comparable to those of Zr-based BMGs, whereas exhibit much higher yield strength of ∼3210 MPa with distinct plasticity. The alloys also show low coercivity of ∼1.2 A/m and high saturation magnetization of ∼0.86 T. The mechanism of good stability of the supercooled liquid and the correlation between strength and Tg for the HE-BMGs were discussed.
