Abstract

Sm2Fe17Nx is of considerable current interest as a permanent-magnet material because of its enhanced Curie temperature and uniaxial anisotropy. The electronic structures of Sm 2Fe17Nx for x=0 and x∼2.6 have been studied with photoemission and spin-polarized calculations. The materials are prepared by arc melting and nitrogen is introduced by ion implantation. The nitrogen concentration is quantified with Auger electron spectroscopy. The Sm 4f electrons with binding energies between 6 and 10 eV are investigated with resonant photoemission using photon energies near 140 eV. The major features of ultra-violet photoemission spectra include the Fe 3d band with a strong peak at 0.8 eV and a small peak at 2.9 eV below the Fermi energy which agree quite well with the theoretical density of states calculation. The modification of the electronic structure with nitrogen concentration is studied to understand the effect of nitrogen addition on the magnetic properties.
