Structural, Magnetic, and Electrical Characteristics of Metastable Iron Oxide Nano-Sized Powders


Article Preview

Structural, magnetic and electrical properties of iron oxide nano-sized powders synthesised electrochemically under various conditions are presented. The influence of the temperature and current density of synthesis on particular powder characteristics is established. Possibilities for co-existence of various phases and their impact on powder properties, as well as feasible paths of phase relaxation and transition during non-isothermal heating are investigated, too. In this way, optimal procedures for the preparation and stabilisation of iron oxides nano-sized powders of different characteristics are evaluated.
