In this study, the effects of Cr content on heating rate upon annealing on the structural and magnetic properties were investigated for melt-spun Nd5Fe77-xCrxB18 (x=0,3 and 5) alloys. The crystallization products of amorphous Nd5Fe74Cr3B18 were found to depend strongly on heating rate. Amorphous Nd5Fe77B18 crystallized into Fe3B/Nd2Fe23B3, while amorphous Nd5Fe72Cr5B18 crystallized into Fe3B/Nd2Fe14B.
