|Title:||Magnetic Study Of Nanocrystalline Ferrites And The Effect Of Swift Heavy Ion Irradiation|
Siva Kumar V.V.
|Abstract:||100 MeV Si+7 irradiation induced modifications in the structural and magnetic properties of Mg0.95Mn0.05Fe 2O4 nanoparticles have been studied by using X-ray diffraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy and a SQUID magnetometer. The X-ray diffraction patterns indicate the presence of single-phase cubic spinel structure of the samples. The particle size was estimated from the broadened (311) X-ray diffraction peak using the well-known Scherrer equation. The milling process reduced the average particle size to the nanometer range. After irradiation a slight increase in the particle size was observed. With the room temperature Mössbauer spectroscopy, superparamagnetic relaxation effects were observed in the pristine as well as in the irradiated samples. No appreciable changes were observed in the room temperature Mössbauer spectra after ion irradiation. Mössbauer spectroscopy performed on a 12 h milled pristine sample (6 nm) confirmed the transition to a magnetically ordered state for temperatures less than 140 K. All the samples showed well-defined magnetic ordering at 5 K, whereas, at room temperature they were in a superparamagnetic state. From the magnetization studies performed on the irradiated samples, it was concluded that the saturation magnetization was enhanced. This was explained on the basis of SHI irradiation induced modifications in surface states of the nanoparticles. © Springer 2005.|
