Preparation and Magnetic Properties of Y-Type Ferroxplana by Sol-Gel Method
The preparation and magnetic properties of Y-type ferroxplana were investigated. Y-type ferroxplana of composition Ba2Zn1.2-xCoxCu0.8Fe12O22 was prepared by citrate sol-gel autocombustion process. X varied from 0 to 1.2. Phase formation was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). The microstructure was observed via scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The frequency spectra of initial permeability were measured via an impedance analyzer. Results reveal that a well-defined Y-type phase can be formed after the auto-combusted powders were annealed at 900oC. The synthesized nano-sized powder is very active and can be sintered well at 900oC. The sintered samples have fine-grained microstructure. The samples exhibit excellent magnetic properties in hyper-frequency. As zinc content increases, the initial permeability is enhanced and the cut-off frequency decreases.
