Complex Permeability Spectra of Co-Substituted Lithium Zinc Perminvar Ferrite
The effect of Co-substitution on the complex permeability of LiZn ferrite was studied. The polycrystalline ferrite samples with a composition of ((Li0.5Fe0.5)0.8Zn0.2)1-xCoxFe2.05O4, where x varies from 0 to 0.08, were prepared by solid-reaction method. The sintered samples were annealed at 490oC for 96 h to produce perminvar effect. The complex permeability was measured in the frequency range from 1 MHz to 2 GHz. The Co-substitution can enhance the real part of complex permeability (μ’). The maximum μ’ appears when x=0.02. The Co-substituted LiZn samples, especially for x=0.02 and 0.04, present resonance-type magnetic spectra obviously. The μ’ of the sample for x=0.02 increases because the damping of domain wall movement decreases after the annealing treatment. The resonance character of the annealed sample becomes even more remarkable due to its domain wall stabilization.
