A new method for obtaining magnetic Fe-Mn-O nanoparticles by electric arc sputtering followed by calcination is proposed. It is shown that the obtained nanoparticles have high thermal stability.The aim of this research is to investigate the phase transformations and magnetic properties of nanoparticles formed during electric arc sputtering of composite Fe-Mn-C with subsequent annealing of the resulting composite in an oxygen atmosphere. As a result of the study, pure metals, mixed oxides, carbides, and carbon nanocomposites are synthesized. The magnetic susceptibility of Fe-Mn-C composites grows with an annealing temperature increase up to 600°C as compared to the iron-carbon system. The obtained methods and results can serve as a base for new synthesis techniques to obtain composite magnetic nanoparticles with a low carbon content.
