An Isotope Separator On-Line (ISOL), dedicated to on-line perturbed angular correlation (PAC) and positron annihilation spectroscopy (PAS), has been constructed at CIAE based on the HI-13 tandem accelerator, and a 30 keV radioactive beam of 62Zn with intensity of 2 ×107/s produced by it. Using the 62Zn radioactive beam the investigation of the nano-crystalline soft magnetic Fe73.5Cu1Nb3Si13.5B9 materials has been fulfiled for the first time by the on-line time differential PAC technique. Two quadrupole interaction frequencies ω 01 ( = 440 Mrad/s) and ω 02 ( = 90 Mrad/s) were gained, indicating there are two implantation sites of 62Zn. The frequency ω 02 shows a fluctuation of the crystal lattice constants and proves the characteristic distribution model of nano-crystalline grain boundary. The frequency ω 01 demonstrates that the implanted 62Zn occupies the site of the ordered grain core. The fractions of ω 01 and ω 02 are f01 = 38 % and f02 = 62 %, respectively.
