Abstract


Pure BiFeO3 (BFO) nanoparticles were prepared using various complexing agents like citric acid, malonic acid, succinic anhydride and tartaric acid by sol-gel method annealed at different temperatures (400 °C, 500 °C, 600 °C). X-Ray diffraction pattern of various samples show the degree of formation of required phase. Particle size of pure phase BFO has been shown using TEM image. Scanning Electron Microscopy studies for different samples give detailed study of morphology of samples. Ferroelectric and magnetic studies of best prepared samples show their comparative multiferroic properties. Dielectric analysis also shows the variation in dielectric loss, real and imaginary part of permittivity versus frequency at room temperature.
