The Basic Properties of the Ferroelectromagnetic Composites Based on the Ferrite and PZT-Type Powders
In this paper a ferroelectric–ferromagnetic composites based on a doped PZT-type and ferrite powders were presented. Ferroelectric powder (in amount of 85.0 wt-%) was based on multicomponent PZT-type materials: i) Pb(Zr0.51Ti0.49)O3+0.2%at.Bi2O3+0.03%at.Nb2O5+ 0.06%at.MnO2, ii) Pb0.84Ba0.16(Zr0.54Ti0.46)O3+1.0%at.Nb2O5, while nickel–zinc ferrite Ni0.64Zn0.36Fe2O4 (in amount of 15.0 wt-%) served as the magnetic component of the composite samples. The synthesis of the ferroelectric–ferromagnetic composite’s powders was performed by solid state method, while final densification of the synthesized powders was achieved using free sintering method.Conducted basic tests indicate that obtained ferroelectromagnetic ceramic composites (PZT-ferrite type) exhibit good properties giving the possibility to use them to construct magnetoelectric transducers.
