Nd9.5Fe81Zr3B6.5ribbons are prepared by single roller melt-spinning technique at 1150 °C which is in the solid and liquid coexistence zone. The phase evolution and magnetic properties were studied by X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry, transmission electron microscopy observations, and magnetization measurements. The experimental results show that in comparison to the ribbons quenching at higher temperature, the thickness of ribbons prepared at 1150 °C are insensitive to the wheel speed and an uniform nanoscale structure with fine grains can be obtained directly from the semi-melt and the exchange coupling interaction between the grains was enhanced for the nanocomposite permanent alloy which can contributed to excellent magnetic properties. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
