Synthesis and Magnetic Properties of La-Doped Ni Ferrites
Ni ferrites doped with lanthanum with a nominal composition of NiFe2-xLaxO4(x=0.05) were obtained by mechanochemical treatments using NiCO3•2Ni (OH)2•4H2O , La2O3 and Fe2O3 as raw materials. Both series of materials were characterised by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The results indicated that the mixture became amorphous stage after ball-milled for 30 h, and single phase NiFe1.95La0.05O4 could be obtained after calcined at 700 for 2 h. The addition of lanthanum resulted in a reduction of all the magnetic parameters evaluated.
