DEC Lunch

On Thursday, January 23 from 12:15 – 1:15 p.m. — Occom Commons, Goldstein Hall, join us for lunch and a chance to hear from Thayer Professor Ian Baker, who will be talking about his current research on “High-Performance Nickel-Iron (NiFE) Permanent Magnetics for Electric Motors and Turbines.”

About The Talk: Demand for high-performance permanent magnets for motors is increasing rapidly for applications such as wind turbine generators and motors in electric and hybrid cars. Sm-Co and Nd-Fe-B rare earth (RE) magnets, which have the highest energy product (BH)max of any magnets, are used for such challenging applications. However, RE magnets are very expensive and RE mining has been associated with severe environmental degradation. The project team aimed to establish a low-cost method to produce bulk L1o – structured NiFe, which has magnetic properties comparable to the best RE magnets.

Free and open to all. RSVP here.
