Loss characterization in magnetostrictors is one of the key issues for realizing reliable magnetomechanical transducers. Concerning with the hysteresis minor loop within a relatively linear area of magnetostrictive curve, there are three types of losses, elastic loss, magnetic loss and piezomagnetic coupling loss, similar to the loss mechanism of a piezoelectric (elastic, dielectric and piezoelectric losses) that our group has established recent years. By measuring accurately the mechanical quality factors Q A for the resonance and Q B for the anti-resonance in the admittance/impedance curve, we can derive these three physical losses. By introducing these losses factors we can characterize magnetostrictive losses using complex parameters.
