Cd-Zr co-substituted nickel spinel ferrite was prepared using standard ceramic method of preparation.The prepared samples were characterized by XRD for its structural analysis. The lattice parameter, particle size and X-ray density were obtained from the XRD data. Further, using XRD data the cation distribution was obtained revealing that the Zr4+ ions occupy both tetrahedral and octahedral sites.

Keywords: Cation Distribution, XRD Pattern, Lattice Parameter, Ceramic Method, X-Ray density
