Magnetic Behavior of Barium Hexaferrite Nanoparticles
An analysis of the magnetic behavior of Barium Hexaferrite nanoparticles is presented in this paper. The particles’ average size is around 200 nm. The SU-8 photoresist is used as dielectric host matrix in which the particles are embedded. The volume fraction of magnetic particles reached is around 10%. Microwave characterizations show the properties of the resulting nanocomposite. The external applied magnetic field plays the main role in orienting these magnetic particles in the composite. Coplanar CPW lines were used to investigate the magnetic material’s efficiency by its non-reciprocal effects. Magnetic nanocomposites seem promising material for future applications. Thus, higher magnetic particle volume fractions and better orientation are required.
