The NdFe10.5V1.5Nx nitrides crystallize in the ThMn12-type structure. The nitrogen atoms occupy interstitial sites, and their most important effects are on the crystal fields around the rare earth ion sites. The variation of anisotropy fields of NdFe 10.5V1.5Nx as a function of the nitrogen content x is presented. The crystal field interaction parameters are determined by using single-ion model. In the light of this study, high performance magnetic powders based on NdFe10.5V1.5Nx were successfully prepared.
