Preparation and Evaluation of Metal/Ceramic Nanocomposites for High Frequency Inductive Devices


Article Preview

Fe/MgO nanocomposites, which are applicable to high frequency electronic devices, were fabricated by ultrasonic spray pyrolysis and selective reduction processes. Transmission electron micrographs showed that nano ferromagnetic Fe particles were isolated by MgO insulating matrix. With the increase of the reduction temperature, the particle size and saturation magnetization of the nanocomposites increased, which resulted in the decrease of the coercive force and the increase of the permeability. Furthermore, the ferromagnetic resonance peak of the nanocomposites was not observed up to 9 GHz.
