Ames National Laboratory is a government-owned, contractor-operated national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

For more than 70 years, the Ames National Laboratory has successfully partnered with Iowa State University, and is unique among the 17 DOE laboratories in that it is physically located on the campus of a major research university. Many of the scientists and administrators at the Laboratory also hold faculty positions at the University and the Laboratory has access to both undergraduate and graduate student talent.

Abstract

The field and pressure dependencies of the magnetostriction of Tb0.316Dy0.684Fe1.982 have been measured in a grain‐oriented rod after thermally annealing for 1 day at 850 °C and for 4 days at 950 °C in an argon atmosphere. The results of the heat treatment are a fivefold increase in the strain coefficient d 33(=dλ/dH) and a 100% increase in the maximum strain (λ). There was also an increase in the λ‐vs‐Hhysteresis. Under compressive uniaxial stress there was virtually no bulk change in magnetostrictive strain until the field exceeded a critical value which depended on the applied stress, for instance ∼12 kA/m under a stress of 6 MPa.
