Purpose: Due to the growing interest and multitude of possible applications, zinc oxide nanowires, including those doped with ZnO nanoparticles, can became, alongside carbon nanotubes, a very desirable material which use is predicted in the construction of nanogenerators, dye sensitized solar cells, optoelectronics or ultrasensitive gas detectors. Design/methodology/approach: The electrospinning process allows for low-cost and scalable production of fibrous mats with diameters from a few to several hundred nanometers. What is more, electrospinning method has gained popularity also due to its versatility, now it is possible to produce fibres from almost every known polymer and the simplicity and lack of any additional functionalization of the obtained nanomaterials. The application of the calcination process to remove the polymer matrix from the obtained nanofibres results in the creation of ceramic nanofibres. Findings: Among the existing methods for the production of ceramic nanostructures, including the hydrothermal, physical and chemical vapour deposition methods, nanolithography or molecular self-assembly, the electrospinning process creates the possibility of fabricating one-dimensional nanostructures with unprecedented properties, good quality, no additional functionalization and purification. Research limitations/implications: Due to ongoing research on the potential applications of zinc oxide nanostructures, including photovoltaics, sensorics and electronics, the most predictable behaviour and properties of ZnO nanowires characterize those nanomaterials that exhibit a periodic structure of the crystal lattice. Considering the optimization of the parameters of the method of producing ceramic zinc oxide nanowires doped with crystalline ZnO nanoparticles, it is worth analysing the thermal treatment parameters of nanofibres. Practical implications: Although amorphous structure, hybrid ZnO nanofibres could be used as humidity sensors with much higher sensing properties than crystalline ZnO nanostructures. Originality/value: Low-cost, scalable production of ceramic nanofibres for most technical applications.

Amorphous materials in the form of tapes, despite being discovered more than half a century ago, are still the object of interest for materials engineers and electro-technical industry. They possess a great application potential, and are constantly studied for new variations. Due to the different structure from the commonly manufactured textured FeSi sheets, FeCoB based amorphous alloys demonstrate very good, so called soft magnetic properties. This paper presents the results of studying the structure and magnetic properties of tapes of Fe78CoxSi11-xB11 (X = 0 or 2) alloys of amorphous structure. In addition, the effect of Co alloy addition on the type of structural defects in the area of ferromagnetic saturation approach was examined. It was found that a small addition of Co affects the increase of saturation magnetization value, as well as the distribution of magnetization vectors within the stresses sources in form of structure defects.

Materiały amorficzne w postaci taśm pomimo, że zostały odkryte już ponad pól wieku temu cały czas są obiektem zainteresowania inżynierów materiałowych i przemysłu elektrotechnicznego. Posiadają one ogromny potencjał aplikacyjny i stale poszukiwane są nowe ich odmiany. Ze względu na odmienną strukturę, niż w powszechnie produkowanych teksturowanych blachach FeSi, stopy amorficzne na bazie FeCoB posiadają bardzo dobre tzw. właściwości magnetycznie miękkie. W pracy przedstawiono wyniki badań struktury oraz właściwości magnetycznych dla taśm stopów Fe78CoxSi11-xB11 (x = 0 lub 2) o strukturze amorficznej. Ponadto, zbadano wpływ dodatku stopowego Co na rodzaj defektów strukturalnych w obszarze podejścia do ferromagnetycznego nasycenia. Stwierdzono, że niewielki dodatek Co wpływa na podniesienie wartości magnetyzacji nasycenia oraz rozkład wektorów magnetyzacji w obrębie źródeł naprężeń w postaci defektów struktury.

The aim of the work is to study the ability and potential of glass formation in Ni-Fe-Cu-P alloys. A series of alloys were produced in arc furnace (i.e. Ni70Fe5Cu5P20, Ni60Fe10Cu10P20, Ni50Fe15Cu15P20, Ni40Fe20Cu20P20, Ni30Fe25Cu25P20, Ni20Fe30Cu30P20). The primary microstructure of the ingots was studied. The ribbons in as-melt-spun state were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The Ni70Fe5Cu5P2, Ni60Fe10Cu10P20 melt-spun alloys were found to be amorphous. For higher copper and iron concentrations a crystalline structure was obtained after melt spinning. This correlated with the tendency for the formation of the Fe-based phases enriched in P and Cu-based poorly alloyed phases which resulted in the formation of crystalline microstructure in melt-spun ribbons. For higher concentration of Fe and Cu, microstructures of the alloys contained constituents resultant from a tendency for separation in the liquid state. It is observed that the formation of the crystal line melt-spun ribbons is caused by the attraction of phosphorus by iron and the formation of copper-based fcc phase.

Celem pracy było zbadanie podatności na zeszklenie oraz możliwości wytworzenia struktury szklistej w stopach wieloskładnikowych Ni-Fe-Cu-P. W piecu łukowym wytworzono serię stopów (tzn.: Ni70Fe5Cu5P20, Ni60Fe10Cu10P20, Ni50Fe15Cu15P20, Ni40Fe20Cu20P20, Ni30Fe25Cu25P20, Ni20Fe30Cu30P20). Badano strukturę pierwotną wlewków. Taśmy w stanie po odlewaniu na wirujący bęben badano za pomocą dyfrakcji rentgenowskiej. Stwierdzono, że stopy Ni70Fe5Cu5P20, Ni60Fe10Cu10P20 odlewane na wirujący bęben były amorficzne. Dla stopów o wyższych zawartościach miedzi i żelaza po odlewaniu na wirujący walec otrzymano strukturę krystaliczną. Fakt ten można powiązać z tendencją do tworzenia faz na osnowie żelaza wzbogaconych w fosfor oraz zubożonych w pozostałe składniki stopowe faz na osnowie miedzi,które przyczyniły się do tworzenia w odlewanych taśmach mikrostruktury krystalicznej. Dla wyższych zawartości żelaza i miedzi, mikrostruktury stopów zawierały składniki fazowe powstające w efekcie tendencji stopów do podziału fazowego w stanie ciekłym. Zaobserwowano, że tworze nie krystalicznych taśm jest spowodowane przez przyciąganie fosforu przez żelazo oraz tworzenie bogatej w miedź fazy o strukturze regularnej ściennie centrowanej.

Purpose: The paper presents the changes of mechanical properties and the fractures of Co70.5Fe2.5Mn2Mo1Si9B15 metallic glass ribbons after a low-temperature activation process. Design/methodology/approach: The studied alloy was fabricated by continuous casting of the alloy stream on a turning wheel. The plastic properties were determined using the bend test. The investigations of unit cracking energy using the “tearing” test on the testing machine were carried out. The structure testing in transmission electron microscope and the static tensile test on the Instron testing machine were also carried out. Findings: The studies for 5 samples and for 2 ribbon sides were carried out. The highest plasticity occurred after annealing at 200°C for 1 h. The differences of mechanical properties in a function of a cross section of the ribbon were also presented. Practical implications: Despite the occurrence of heterogeneity of properties on the thickness of metallic glass ribbon the essential meaning have the averaging properties of a product which decided about possibility of practical application. Originality/value: In the article there was found that studied samples obtain different plasticity and different value of the yield point in the different bending methods.

Purpose: The thermal and mechanical properties of Ni-Cr-B-W alloys as a function of tungsten content were studied. Design/methodology/approach: The studies were performed on (Ni49.7Cr14.7B35.6)100-xWx(x:15-40) metallic glass in the form of foils, which have thickness of 20 and 100 μm. Structures of samples wer examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Thermal stabilities of the amorphous samples were measured using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Microhardness of the amorphous samples were determined by Vicker’s hardness tester. Findings: The XRD investigations revealed that samples of the alloys which have the thickness of 20 μm were amorphous. However, 100 μm samples of the alloys were not amorphous, but contained crystalline phases. Increasing the tungsten addition improved the glass transition and crystallization temperatures of the alloys. Also, microhardness of the alloys improved with tungsten addition. Practical implications: Thermal and mechanical properties of the alloys investigated depend on their tungsten content. Originality/value: This is the first study on Ni-Cr-B-W metallic glass system. Also, because of the production method used, all of the alloys were obtained as amorphous regardless of their composition, so their thermal and mechanical properties could be determined.

Purpose: The purpose of this article was to investigate the possibility of the production of Fe-Nb-B bulk metallic alloys with additions of yttrium and zirconium elements. Furthermore, this paper tends to present the structure and selected properties of obtained alloys. In this article the influence of an argon atmosphere on casting process was observed too. Design/methodology/approach: The production attempts were performed on Fe-Nb-B-Zr and Fe-Nb-B-Y system alloys in form of a plate. Master alloy ingots with compositions of Fe72B22Y4Nb2 and Fe71(Nb0.8Zr0.2)6B23 were prepared by induction melting of pure Fe, Nb, B, Y and Fe, Nb, B, Zr elements in an argon atmosphere. The ingots have been crushed and then the investigated material was cast with and without a protective atmosphere. The investigated materials were cast in form of a plate with thickness of 1 mm. The structure analysis of the studied materials in as-cast state was carried out using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and microscopic observation. The thermal properties of the alloys were examined by DSC methods. The measurments of the hardness were performed with the Vickers method. Findings: The Fe-Nb-B-Y and Fe-Nb-B-Zr system alloys in form of a plate were produced by die pressure casting method. The investigation methods revealed that the studied as-cast alloys were crystalline. The structure of the obtained plates is rather fine-grained and there were not found any impurities and undesirable phases inside the materials. The results of calorimetric curves confirm that all tested samples are crystalline. Practical implications: To extend the potential applications of the Fe-based BMGs, amorphous alloys with larger critical sizes and better processability are required. The Fe-Nb-B-Zr and Fe-Nb-B-Y bulk metallic glasses obtained by die pressure casting method can be used for production of telecommunications devices, sensors or low-energy transformers. These materials exhibit excellent mechanical and soft magnetic properties. Originality/value: An overall presentation of an influence of the yttrium and zirconium additions on the attempt of forming Fe72B22Y4Nb2 and Fe71(Nb0.8Zr0.2)6B23 alloys. The chemical composition of these alloys was tested in our laboratory for the first time.

Purpose: The thermal and magnetic properties of Fe-based bulk amorphous materials in as-cast state in the form of rods and rings were studied. Design/methodology/approach: The studies were performed on Fe72B20Si4Nb4 metallic glass in the form of rods and rings. The amorphous structure of tested samples was examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) methods. The thermal stability of the glassy samples was measured using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The soft magnetic properties examination of tested material contained coercive force and magnetic permeability relaxation measurements. The crystallization temperature (Tp), supercooled liquid region (ΔTx), coercive force (Hc) and magnetic permeability relaxation (Δμ/μ) versus sample thickness of studied glassy samples were also examined. Findings: The X-ray diffraction and calorimetric investigations revealed that the studied Fe72B20Si4Nb4 bulk metallic glasses were amorphous. However, the differences of glass transition temperature and crystallization temperature between samples with selected thickness are probably caused by different amorphous structures. The changing of glass-forming ability and magnetic properties obtained for samples with different shape and thickness is a result of the non-homogenous amorphous structure of tested metallic glasses. The different states of amorphous phase could be caused by the free volume concentrations formed by different cooling rates in casting process. Practical implications: The soft magnetic properties of studied metallic glasses can be formed by different sample thickness which are strictly linked with different states of amorphous structure. Originality/value: The applied methods of materials investigations are suitable to determine the changes of structure and selected properties of studied samples cast in different forms and dimensions, especially in aspect of the soft magnetic properties improvement.

Findings: The X-ray diffraction investigations have revealed that the studied as-cast rod was amorphous. The fractures of studied alloy could be classified as mixed fracture with indicated “river” and “smooth” fractures. Both type of the fracture surfaces consist of weakly formed “river” and “shell” patterns and “smooth” regions. The “river” patterns are characteristic for metallic glassy alloys.

The elastic modulus of Ca-b ased BMGs is comparable to that of hum an bone s, and Ca, Mg, and Zn are biocompatible. These features make the Ca-Mg-Zn–based alloys attractive for use in biomedical applications.

Design/methodology/approach: The studies were carried out on FeCo-based glassy test pieces with the following composition: Fe36Co36B19.2Si4. Samples in form of rods were prepared by copper mould casting method. The structure was tested by X-ray diffraction method and scanning electron microscope observation (SEM). For determination of thermal properties the DTA and DSC method were used. Specific heat of amorphous samples was investigated by calorimetric method. Findings: The X-ray diffraction revealed that fabricated samples exhibit glassy structure. Broad diffraction halo could be seen for each tested sample.

On the base of DSC curves glass transition temperature (Tg) and crystallization temperature (Tx) were determinate. Specific heat investigation show insignificant changes in temperature range from 30 K to Tg. Practical implications: Bulk glassy FeCo-based alloys which are fabricated by rapidly solidifying technique are very interesting engineering materials because of its unique mechanical and magnetic properties. They could be used in many applications. Specific heat is important in solidification process. This property is significant input-data in computer simulation of solidification process. Originality/value: It is important to investigate thermal properties of bulk metallic glasses (including Cp) in order to understand mechanism of structural relaxation, glass transition and crystallization sequences.

Content available remote Properties changes of Co-based amorphous alloy in thermal activation process
EN
Purpose: The paper presents a stress relaxation process of Co69Mo2Fe4Si14B11 metallic glass and properties changes in a temperature range up to 300 ºC after annealing from 1 to 16 hours (in case of plasticity and stress relaxation researches) and 2 hours (for the magnetic properties investigations). Design/methodology/approach: The plastic properties of the studied material were determined using the bend test, applied for metallic glasses. The investigations of magnetic properties were carried out using the Ferrometer measurement system. For the higher frequencies the Remacomp C-100 system was used, allowing determination of the magnetic properties of the ferromagnetic cores. Stress relaxation investigations in metallic glasses by a bending test were carried out. Findings: The influence of thermal activation on the properties changes of Co-based metallic glass was determined after annealing from temperature of 150 to 300°C. After the heat treatment carried out the best magnetic properties were obtained for the sample annealed for 2 hours at 150°C. The increase of the magnetic field frequencies causes a significant deterioration of the material magnetic properties. High plasticity the metallic glass ribbons have to 200°C during annealing to 16 hours. Increasing the annealing temperature causes brittleness of the material. Distinct relaxation processes are observed at higher temperatures and annealing times. Research limitations/implications: Metallic glasses after heat treatment become brittle, which reduces the possibility of using these materials, and often impossible to change their geometric form. Therefore, the heat treatment of metallic glasses must be carried out after the final forming of the geometry of shaped, cores, etc., or in conditions not leading to embrittlement of the material. Practical implications: Usage of metallic glasses is possible only in a narrow range of temperatures which does not lead to significant changes of properties or after proper heat treatment carried out in the aim of specified physical properties obtaining. The important is prediction of alloy properties changes during temperature changes and material using. Originality/value: In the article influence of low-temperature thermal activation processes, which was conducted up to 16 hours, on the stress relaxation and significant changes of magnetic properties of cobalt-based metallic glass were presented.
