In this project four alloy compositions were selected: Fe77.5Si13.5B9, Fe76.sSii3.5B9Cui, Fe74.5Sii3.5B9Nb3 and Fe73.sSii3.5B9Nb3Cui. Thermal properties by DSC, phase formation by XRD, microstructural observation by TEM and magnetic properties by VSM were compared to elucidate the effects of Cu and Nb alloying additions in the Fe73.5Si13.5B9Nb3Cui alloy.
