We investigated the improvement in magnetic properties of high-purity Fe-(5, 6) wt% Si formed by cold crucible levitation melting. The results showed that Fe-6 wt% Si alloy has a smaller coercivity than Fe-5 wt% Si. The hysteresis loss of both alloys increases linearly and slightly with maximum magnetization, and increases significantly after a certain maximum magnetization. Additionally, demagnetized domain structure and domain wall motion in both samples was studied by means of Lorentz microscopy. The results indicated that the domain wall motion of Fe-6 wt% Si can be activated in lower external fields and displaces more rapidly than Fe-5 wt% Si. Moreover, the displacement of domain walls that penetrate symmetrical grain boundaries and dislocations in Fe-6 wt% Si was analyzed. The boundaries and dislocations have no pinning effect on domain wall motion.
