Synthesis and Microstructure Characterization of Lithium Substituted Magnesium Ferrite Synthesized by Solid State Reaction Method

Authors(2) :-Ravi Kant, Ajay Kumar Mann

Nano-crystalline lithium substituted magnesium ferrite was synthesized by solid state reaction method. Iron oxide , magnesium carbonate and lithium carbonate are used as raw materials to prepare circular pellets of size 35 mm diameter are subjected to X- ray diffraction (XRD) to calculate average nano – crystalline size using Debye - Scherrer's formula. X-ray diffraction patterns of the synthesized ferrite particles in the samples are cubic spinel ferrite. The morphological analysis is performed using scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM images show that particle size range was between 170 to 250 nm.
