Magnetization measurements have been performed on amorphous Fe80B20ribbons with different degrees of crystallization. Samples were obtained by isothermal treatment using a differential scanning calorimeter in order to achieve a nucleation-and-growth process only. The temperature dependence of the saturation magnetization and of the low field magnetization is interpreted in terms of the effects of the interfacial component formed by the atoms on the surface of bcc Fe nanocrystals.
