|Title:||R-FE-B SINTERED MAGNET AND PRODUCTION METHOD THEREFOR|
This R-Fe-B sintered magnet has a main phase containing R2(Fe, (Co))14B intermetallic compound and a grain boundary phase, and is characterized in that: the inter-particle grain boundary of the grain boundary phase includes an expanded width part that is surrounded by a narrow width part at which the inter-particle width is 10 nm or less and that has a structure distended in the inter-particle width direction as compared with the grain boundary width of the narrow width part; the inter-particle width at the expanded width part is at least 30 nm; Fe/R which is the atomic ratio of Fe with respect to R in the expanded width part is 0.01-2.5; the main phase includes, in the surface part thereof, an HR-rich phase represented by (R', HR)2(Fe, (Co))14B (R' represents one or more elements that are selected from rare-earth elements including Y but excluding Dy, Tb, and Ho, and that essentially include Nd; and HR represents one or more elements selected from among Dy, Tb, and Ho); the contained amount of HR in the HR-rich phase is higher than that in the central part of the main phase. The R-Fe-B sintered magnet according to the present invention has a high magnetic coercive force even when the contained amount of Dy, Tb, and Ho is small.
