“STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF HOLMIUM DOPED COBALT FERRITE BY STANDARD CERAMIC TECHNIQUE”
Keywords:Cobalt ferrite, Rare earth, Structural properties
Objective: Compositions of CoHoxFe2-xO4 (x = 0.00 and 0.02) was prepared by standard ceramic technique using AR grade CoO2, Ho2O3 and Fe2O3. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction technique and the analysis of XRD patterns reveals the formation of single phase cubic spinel structure. The structural parameters like lattice constant (a), x- ray density(dx), bulk density (dB), particle size (t) and porosity (P), tetrahedral and octahedral bondlength (dAX and dBX), the tetrahedral edge (dAXE), and the shared and unshared octahedral edge (dBEX and dBXEU) can be calculated were calculated form XRD data and effect of Ho3+ doped cobalt ferrite was studied. Thus, the rare earth Ho3+ doped cobalt ferrite strongly influences the physical properties of cobalt ferrite.
Materials and Methods: Present series was prepared by standard ceramic technique using AR grade CoO2, Ho2O3 and Fe2O3.
Results: The XRD pattern shows that both the samples possess single phase cubic spinel structure. No extra peak of Ho3+ is observed for x =0.02 sample. Lattice constant, X-ray density of Ho3+ doped cobalt ferrite is increases than that of pure cobalt ferrite.
Conclusion: The rare earth Ho3+ doped cobalt ferrite strongly influences the physical properties of cobalt ferrite.
