Density and Mechanical Strength of Ferrite for Inertial Gyroscope
The effects of NiO on density and mechanic strength of Mn-Zn ferrite used for inertial gyroscope were investigated by measurements of crystal lattice constant, Vickers hardness, bending strength. To investigate this further, powder of Mn-Zn ferrite was characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD) and the fracture surface of Mn-Zn ferrite was checked by scanning electronic microscope (SEM). The investigation revealed that the substitution of Ni2+ modified crystal lattice constant and crystal grain size so that it caused crystal lattice constant of Mn-Zn ferrite to decline and crystal grain size to decrease, therefore it was useful to improve density and mechanic strength of Mn-Zn ferrite by this way. The results show that proper addition of NiO can bring higher density and more perfect mechanic strength of Mn-Zn ferrite used for inertial gyroscope.
