Investigations carried out to study the properties of rapidly solidified Nd-Fe-B alloys containing gallium and cobalt are reported. The gallium content that gives maximum room-temperature Br and BHmax was found to be 0.6 wt.%. Further investigations were carried out with 0.6 wt.% gallium and varying cobalt contents. Transmission electron micrographs of the ribbons indicate a three-phase structure as compared to the two-phase structure in Nd-Fe-B alloys. The three phases are Nd2(Fe,Co)14B, Nd(Fe,Co)4B, and a neodymium-iron-gallium grain boundary phase. The latter phase is depleted in iron, which is believed to increase the coercive force by increasing its effectiveness as a pinning site. Anisotropic magnets were prepared from the above alloys by hot deformation techniques. Energy products up to 40 MGOe were achieved with a magnet uniformity of ±1.5 MGOe through the cross section
