Abstract


Mixed spinel -perovskite composites of (x) Co0.5Ni0.5Fe2O4-(1−x) Bi0.9La0.1FeO3(x = 0, 0.25, 0.40, 0.55, 1.0) have been synthesized by conventional solid state reaction method and annealed at 850 ºC. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern shows that the composites consisted of spinel Co0.5Ni0.5Fe2O4 and rhombohedral perovskite Bi0.9La0.1FeO3 ceramics. FESEM micrographs show closely packed microstructure with grain size in the range 503 nm - 960 nm. Variation of dielectric constant and dielectric loss with temperature at two fixed frequencies (500 kHz and 1 MHz) was studied. The composite with composition x = 0.55/sintered at 850 ºC exhibits the largest coercitivity (Hc) of 883 Oe. The saturation magnetization (Ms) and magnetic moment (µB) increase with an increase of Co0.5Ni0.5Fe2O4 concentration in the composites. From ferroelectric hysteresis loop analysis the values of remnant polarization (Pr) and coercive field (Ec) was found to lie in the range of 0.018-0.745 µC/cm2 and 3.89-6.06 kV/cm. The relative change of magnetocapacitance was found to be 6.6% at a magnetic field of 8 kOe for x = 0.55 composition. Impedance analysis suggests the presence of a temperature dependent electrical relaxation in the material having a typical negative temperature coefficient of the resistance (NTCR) behavior analogous to a semiconductor.
