Projects|Material Solutions Center, Tohoku University(MaSC)

Tohoku University Material Solutions Center (MaSC) is a cooperative base between industry, academics and government that has been set up in a joint effort by Tohoku University and its Institute for Materials Research, Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advance Metals, and Institute of Fluid Science and uses grants for facilities expenses from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.


Research and Development on Non-equilibrium Magnetic Materials
We use non-equilibrium nature of amorphous alloys to develop two magnetic phases of opposite properties. Soft (NANOMET®) and hard magnetic (L10 FeNi) materials produced in our laboratory utilize high atomic diffusivity at low temperatures, which results from crystallization of an amorphous alloy. Our aim is to develop high efficiency rare-earth free magnetic materials, which can help the country in minimization of energy loss and supply risks of critical elements (rare earth).
