Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
University of Dayton Research Institute
RI Contact:
N/A
Abstract:
A major problem that exists with Nd2Fe14B permanent magnets is the high cost of fabricating complex shaped isotropic magnets. The fabrication of conventional high performance Nd2Fe14B magnetic materials involves complicated multi-step processes, such as melting, casting, homogenization, crushing,… More

2002 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$0.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
University of Dayton Research Institute
RI Contact:
Chen Yok
Abstract:
65777 The poor fracture toughness of sintered Nd-Fe-B magnets makes it very difficult to produce magnetic parts with complicated shapes, tiny thicknesses, and small dimensions. Chipping, cracking, and fracture often happen during grinding, assembly, and operation of the Nd-Fe-B magnetic parts.… More
