Abstract

We investigated the microstructural and magnetic property changes of Nd-Fe-B sintered magnets with the application of simultaneous processing via powder doping and dip-coating, using DyF<inf>3</inf> and/or DyH<inf>2</inf>. The simultaneous use of DyF<inf>3</inf> powder doping and DyH<inf>2</inf> dip-coating has a synergistic effect of improving the magnet's coercivity (H<inf>c</inf>) while minimizing the reduction of remanence (B<inf>r</inf>). DyF<inf>3</inf> powder doping suppresses the formation of the rare-earth segregated oxide phase (RE-rich phase, Dy-Nd-O or Nd-O), dramatically improving the grain boundary diffusion depth of Dy (from 250 to 600 μm) during the grain boundary diffusion process (GBDP). The RE-rich phase in Nd-Fe-B magnets is a major obstacle for the grain boundary diffusion of Dy because of the high surface energy of the RE-rich phase and the consumption by the non-stoichiometric RE-rich phase of diffused Dy to form a stoichiometric (Nd, Dy)<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> phase. The slight reduction of the relative density of the as-sintered DyF<inf>3</inf>-doped magnet (from 98.1% to 97.5%) may have also helped to improve the grain boundary diffusion depth of Dy during the GBDP when the magnets were dip-coated with DyH<inf>2</inf>.
