Effect of Cd2+ Substituted Nickel Ferrite oxide (Ni1-xCdxFe2O4) on Magnetic, Dielectric and Structural Properties
The effect of cadmium (Cd2+) substituted at the NiFe2O4 nano materials were this nano material synthesized by auto-combustion technique. The structural analysis confirms that the samples are polycrystalline nature with spinel cubic crystal symmetry. The effect of Cd2+ contains on lattice constants which obeys Vegard's law. The morphological analysis shows that the highly porous structure with spongy like surface morphology. The observed absorption infrared spectra confirm that the exhibits the nano ferrite materials. The magnetic properties measurements reveal that the saturation of magnetization decreases with an increase in constituent Cd2+ in nickel ferrous oxide. The Cd2+ ions present in A-site and Fe3+ are distributed in both tetrahedral and octahedral sites of spinel lattice. The DC measurement shows that the semiconducting behaviour of the prepared Ni1-xCdxFe2O4. The increase in Cd2+ constituent in the nickel ferrite with decrease curie temperature. The dielectric measurement of all samples shows the usual dielectric dispersion with frequency. The impedance spectroscopy analysis suggests grain interior contribution in the conduction process.
