Abstract:A family of multilayer microwires with hard/soft biphase magnetic behavior is here introduced. The microwires consist of a Fe63Pt27Si10 hard magnetic nucleus and a Fe20Ni80 soft outer shell separated by an intermediate insulating Pyrex glass microtube. The precursor FePtSi glass-coated microwire is fabricated by quenching and drawing technique, and its L10 hard magnetic phase is grown by postannealing treatment technique. The polycrystalline FeNi soft magnetic outer shell has been deposited by electroplating. The analysis of the low-field hysteresis loops of the FeNi soft phase after premagnetizing until near magnetic saturation provides information about the magnetostatic coupling between phases. The FeNi magnetization curve is shifted toward positive field when the FePt remanent magnetization is positive and vice versa. A systematic analysis of the magnetostatic coupling and the corresponding bias field arising from uncompensated poles of the premagnetized FePt hard phase has been performed. The strength of the bias field is shown to increase with the reduction of thickness of the FeNi layer. These magnetostatically coupled biphase systems are thought to be of large potential interest as sensing elements in sensor devices.
