Abstract

Doping of rare earth (RE) ions can influence the magnetic properties in spinel ferrites, whereas the phase formation plays an important role. Therefore, it is important to choose the RE ions for doping content to get more benefit. In this work, synthesis of Yttrium doped Co-Zn ferrites were carried out by the method of solid state reaction. Co0.25Zn0.75YxFe2−xO4 (CZYF) is the general formula of the studied ferrites where x = 0.00, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06 and 0.08. The structural properties of CZYF ferrites were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique and further refined by Rietveld method. XRD and Rietveld refinement approved that all the CZYF samples are cubic spinel structure and the lattice parameters were increased with increasing Y content. The variation of grain growth and surface morphology of CZYF samples were studied from SEM images indicated that the average grain size increased from 1.412 µm to 2.341 µm. Frequency dependent magnetic properties (complex permeability, loss factor) were observed in the range of 100 Hz to 120 MHz at 300 K (room temperature). The initial permeability of CZYF ferrites are found to decrease with the increase in Y content. This decrease nature of permeability is related to the increase of porosity and average grain size. At three different temperatures (80 K, 200 K and 300 K), we measured saturation magnetization, coercivity and remanent magnetization. The mentioned properties make CZYF ferrites applicable for use as a soft ferrite.
