Hi Stefan,

I think the problem are the airgaps between the cores. Perhaps you´ll get a little better result if you grind down the coatings at the inner front ends of the cores. Although its nearly impossible to get really smooth fitting surfaces in this way there should be some improvement. Due to the low conductivity of the core material the loss of coating shouldn´t have appreciable disadvantages.

I've done a quick experiment with the T106-52 cores which could give some more ideas regarding these cores for a compact VLF coil.
I wound a coil with 0.5mm enameled cu wire, 85 turns at 33mm diameter.
Inside the coil there are 5 of these cores stacked on another. In
parallel there is a suitable C of 1 uF.

The resonance was found at 7.49 kHz. The 3 dB bandwidth is (7.64-7.36) kHz = 280 Hz. Q = 27. L = 452 uH. Without the cores inside, the resonance frequency rises to 14.54 kHz and the bandwidth is (15.12-14.07) kHz = 1.05 kHz. Q = 14. L = 120 uH.
Hmm, so in this configuration, the effective µr (ur) seems to be just
3.75! :-/
That means i still need half of the number of turns for a single layer
VLF transmit coil?!?
73, Stefan
