The soft magnetic properties of nanocrystalline Fe–Nb–B and Fe–Nb–B–P alloys produced in the atmosphere by a melt-spinning method have been investigated. The nanocrystalline Fe100−xyNbxBy ternary alloys show good soft magnetic properties, relative permeability (μ) above 35000 at a frequency of 1 kHz and coercive force (Hc) below 5.0 Am−1, as well as high saturation magnetic induction (Bs) above 1.55 T in the compositional range of x=6.5–6.7 and y=9.3–10.0 at%. The soft magnetic properties of the nanocrystalline Fe–Nb–B ternary alloys are improved by 0.5–1.5 at% substitution of P for B, without decreasing their Bs. The magnetostriction (λs) value increases and the mean grain size of bcc-Fe phase (D) decreases slightly by substitution of P for B . The nanocrystalline Fe84Nb6.5B9P0.5 and Fe84Nb6.5B8.5P1 alloys show good soft magnetic properties, μ of 46000–47000 at a frequency of 1 kHz, Hc of 3.6–3.9 Am−1 and the core loss of the 0.09 Wkg−1 at maximum induction (Bm) of 1.33 T and a frequency of 50 Hz as well as high Bs of 1.60 T, suggesting that these nanocrystalline Fe–Nb–B–P alloys are suitable for a core materials for pole transformers.
