In the present work we propose to study Fe-Ga and Fe-Al alloys with boron addition in polycrystalline and rapid solidified samples. Both, the addition of boron and the rapid solidification are used to inhibit the ordering of the A2 disordered to ordered DO3 phase, for Ga and Al concentrations near 19%, because the A2 phase is the one that gives the larger magnetostriction values at room temperature. It was also already demonstrated that the addition of boron improves the deformation behavior of Fe-Ga alloys that present grain boundary cracks and then setting these materials more attractive for applications. On the other hand, in the case of Fe-27%Ga alloy, the magnetostriction is also very high, but in this case the phase present is the DO3 and the factor attributed to the high value of the magnetostriction is the continuous lattice softening due to the shear modulus decrease associated to the decrease of the magnetic coupling due to the increase of Ga content in the alloy. We like to study also in the present work the effect of boron addition in the Fe-27%Ga alloy. In a preceding study we identified that Fe-25%Ge and Fe-30%V alloys presented magnetostriction values of -30 and 27 ppm, respectively. It is our intention to study the magnetostrictive behavior of these two alloys with Ge contents > 25% and V contents > 30%, also in polycrystalline and rapid solidified samples. (AU)
