    Abstract

    The effect of sintering process (especially the sintering temperature) on the magnetic property and microstructure of sintered sample of nanosized soft magnetic MnZn ferrite powder was investigated. The sintered sample of MnZn ferrite was prepared by both traditional pressing and cool isostatic pressing on MnZn ferrite nanoparticals. The sintering process of which was segmented. The density, microstructure and phase composition of sintered sample were analyzed by Archimedes' law, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The grain growth and densification in sintering process of MnZn ferrite were investigated. The magnetic property was measured by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) and Nim2000 magnetic material testing system. The results show that the better sintering temperature is 850 °C, at which the better magnetic property and microstructure of sintered compact were obtained.
