Multiferroic Composite Of BFO Lab Report

Good Essays
Multiferroic composite of 0.2 LNMFO + 0.8 BFO with LNMFO as ferrimagnetic and BFO as ferroelectric phase were prepared by the standard solid state reaction method. To prepare BFO stoichiometric amounts of high purity Bi2O3, and Fe2O3 were weighed and mixed thoroughly in acetone media for 5–6 h. The mixed powder of BFO was calcined at 800 °C in a closed alumina crucible for 4 h and then pre-sintered at 850°C for 4 h. High purity Li2CO3, NiO, MnCO3 and Fe2O3 were mixed in stoichiometric amounts to prepare LNMFO by the same procedure as BFO. The well mixed powder was calcined at 800 °C and pre-sintered at 1200 °C for 4 h. After pre-sintering, powders were again grinded in an agate mortar. The obtained powders of BFO and LNMFO were mixed in weight …show more content…
Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX) analysis was done by using the EDX system supplied with the FESEM. The bulk density (ρB) of the composite was determined using the relation: ρ_B=m/(〖πr〗^2 t) where m is the mass, r is the radius and t is the thickness of the pellet. The X-ray density of the composite is given by the formula, ρ_x (composite)=(M_1+M_2)/(V_1+V_2 ) where M_1 is (1-x) times molecular weight of BFO and M_2 is x times molecular weight of LNMFO,〖 V〗_1=M_1/ρ_x (ferroelectric) and V_2=M_2/ρ_x (ferrite) x is the weight fraction of LNMFO in the composites [22]. The ρx is measured by the general formula,〖 ρ〗_x=nM/(N_(A ) V), where n is the number of atoms in a unit cell, M is the molar mass of the sample, NA is Avogadro's number and V is the volume of the unit cell. The porosity of the samples was calculated using the relation, P(%)=(ρ_x-ρ_B)/ρ_x ×100. The dielectric and magnetic properties were carried out using WAYNE KERR 6500B Impedance Analyzer. To measure dielectric properties the samples were painted by conducting silver paste on both sides. The dielectric constant (ε′) was calculated from the capacitance using the formula: ε^'=Ct/(ε_0 A), where C is the capacitance of the pellet, A is the cross-sectional area of the electrode and ε_0 ( = 8.85×10-12 F/m) is the permittivity in free space. The relation: σ_ac=ω〖ε^' …show more content…
1 shows the XRD pattern of 0.2BFO + 0.8LNMFO composite. It is observed from the XRD pattern that the composite confirms the presence of the ferrite and ferroelectric phases. The lattice parameter of ferroelectric phase is measured by solving different sets of three equations corresponding to three consecutive peaks. Then by taking the average the accurate value of the lattice parameter is obtained. The values of lattice parameter of all the peaks for the ferrite phase obtained for each reflected plane are plotted against the Nelson–Riley function [17]:F(θ)=1/2 ((〖cos〗^2 θ)/sinθ+(〖cos〗^2 θ)/θ), where θ is Bragg's angle. A straight line has been obtained and the accurate value of the lattice parameter has been determined from the extrapolation of these lines to

    Based from the definition, we can derive the two parts of stoichiometry, the composition and the reaction. Section I. Molar Mass is the sum of the masses of the atoms that make up the formula. (i.e. Aluminum Sulfate Al2(SO4)3 has a molar mass of 342g/mol. The unit g/mol is read as grams per mole).…

    The Zinc nitrate hexa hydrate [Zn(NO3)2.6H2O] and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was adopted as synthesis precursors. The production unit for this chemical synthesis method was consisted of three neck glass flask and of a magnetic stirrer with temperature control. The reaction was carried out in a nitrogen environment to prevent oxidation. In the plass chamber, NaOH was dissolved in Starch solution (3% concentration of Starch in double distilled water solution) to a concentration of 0.1M and the resulting solutions were stirried at 700 C for 1 hour. Then, a solution of 0.5 M Zn(NO3)2.6H2O was added dropwise under constant stirring.…

    The FT-Raman and FT-IR spectroscopic analysis of 2'-nitroacetophenone (2NAP) were performed. The vibrational spectra of 2NAP was found by applying the Density Functional Theory Calculations based on Beck3-lee-yang-parr (B3LYP) level with the use of the standard 6-31G*/6-311+G** basis set. The vibrational wave number for the optimized geometry was calculated at the same level of theory. The computed values of frequencies are scaled using an appropriate scale factor to give up the excellent unity with the observed values. Detailed interpretations of the infrared and Raman spectra of 2NAP are reported.…

    (b) From Equation 8.4, the critical resolved shear stress is just 8.18 The critical resolved shear stress for iron is 27 MPa (4000 psi). Determine the maximum possible yield strength for a single crystal of Fe pulled in tension. Solution In order to determine the maximum possible yield strength for a single crystal of Fe pulled in tension, we simply employ Equation 8.5 as 8.23 (a) From the plot of yield strength versus (grain diameter)–1/2 for a 70 Cu–30 Zn cartridge brass in Figure 8.15, determine values for the constants σ0 and ky in Equation 8.7.

    The values of each component of the equivalent circuit were fitted with the ZsimpWin3.10 software in Table.3. As seen in Fig.8, Rs represented the electrolyte resistance of the electrolyte solution in the equivalent circuit, Rpo was the pore resistance of coatings, indicating the equivalent resistance of coatings’ defects, and Rct was related to charge transfer resistance in the substrate/electrolyte interface. CPE1 and CPE2 were the double-layer capacitance of coating/ electrolyte and substrate/electrolyte interface separately. According to the definition of polarization, the polarization resistance was corresponding to the real part of the resistance when the frequency was zero. As seen in Fig.8, when the frequency was zero, the two constant phase elements (CPE1 and CPE2) were infinite value.…
