    The phase composition, nanocrystallite size, lattice microstrain and particles morphology of a SrFe12O19 powder subjected to milling and subsequent annealing were studied by various methods. The investigations showed that the high-temperature annealing of the preliminarily milled powder resulted in the increase in the coercive force (μ0i) of the SrFe12O19 powder up to 0.4 T owing to the formation of nanocrystalline structure (D ∼ 10 3 nm) with low lattice microstrains. However, the annealed powder cannot be textured in an applied magnetic field because of random orientations of the crystallites in powder particles. A processing technique, which includes the low-temperature annealing of powder in an applied magnetic field, was suggested. It allowed us to produce the anisotropic powder of the strontium ferrite with the nanocrystalline structure that ensures the high coercive force of the powder (∼0.4 T) and possibility of the powder texturing in the magnetic field. The prepared samples textured in a magnetic field exhibit the higher both remanence (by a factor of 1.4) and energy product (by a factor of 2.1) as compared to those of isotropic SrFe12O19 samples.
