Abstract

A study of low-field non-resonant microwave absorption (LFA) at 9.8 GHz, on as-cast amorphous Co-rich CoFeBSi microwires under different measuring geometries is presented. Results confirm that LFA is associated with the magnetization processes from the unmagnetized state (HDC = 0) to the saturated condition, in many aspects similar to Giant Magnetoimpedance (GMI), and clearly different from ferromagnetic resonance (FMR). LFA signal showed large variations in its maximum–minimum separation as a function of the measuring geometry, which is interpreted in terms of the total anisotropy in the process.
