On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Magnetic properties of iron nitride particles prepared with reactive gas evaporation method were investigated. Major products for higher NH3gas pressure region is γ'Fe4N and αFe. For lower pressure region αFe was produced, which was oxidized to Fe3O4after exposure to air. It is found that particles consist of γ'Fe4N and γFe are more persistent to oxidation comparing to those of αFe.
