Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanocrystalline magnetic materials have attracted a great deal of attention for several decades due to their unique size-dependent physical properties. Nanoparticles with unique magnetic properties can be synthesized by a number of methods and be used in many fields. Nanocapsules with a shell/core structure have also been studied extensively. The control of nanostructures is crucial for obtaining high-performance magnetic materials. Magnetic heterostructures are important for developing electric devices. A number of thin films and nanowires with various properties have also been reported.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in nanocrystalline magnetic materials, including but not limited to nanoparticles, nanocapsules, nanocrystalline bulk magnetic materials, nanowires, thin films, etc.

Rare-earth-free permanent magnets have attracted considerable attention due to their favorable properties and applicability for cost-effective, high-efficiency, and sustainable energy devices. However, the magnetic field annealing process, which enhances the performance of permanent magnets, needs to be optimized for different magnetic fields and phases. Therefore, we investigated the effect of composition on the crystallization of amorphous MnBi to the ferromagnetic low-temperature phase (LTP). The optimal compositions and conditions were applied to magnetic field annealing under 2.5 T for elemental Mg- and Sb/Mg pair-substituted MnBi. The optimum MnBi composition for the highest purity LTP was determined to be Mn56Bi44, and its maximum energy product, (BH)max, was 5.62 MGOe. The Mg-substituted MnBi exhibited enhanced squareness (Mr/Ms), coercivity (Hc), and (BH)max values up to 0.8, 9659 Oe, and 5.64 MGOe, respectively, whereas the same values for the Sb/Mg pair-substituted MnBi were 0.76, 7038 Oe, and 5.60 MGOe, respectively. The substitution effects were also investigated using first-principles calculations. The density of states and total magnetic moments of Mn16Bi15Mg and Mn16Bi15Sb were similar to those of pure Mn16Bi16. Conversely, the Sb-substituted MnBi resulted in a dramatic enhancement in the anisotropy constant (K) from a small negative value (−0.85 MJ/m3) to a large positive value (6.042 MJ/m3). Full article
