Graphical Abstract:


The preparation of Sr1-xNdx(MnSn)0.5Fe11O19 M-type hexaferrites powders by a citrate sol-gel method was investigated. The samples were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Microwave absorption properties of hexaferrite- acrylic resin composites were measured using SWR (standing-wave-ratio) method in the range of 12 to 20 GHz. It was shown that small amounts of Nd+3 substitution could significantly modify the microwave electromagnetic parameters. Furthermore, the investigation indicated that substitution of Nd+3 ions for Sr+2 ions in Sr(MnSn)0.5Fe11O19 resonant frequency would move toward higher frequency. The results showed that the powder possesses excellent microwave absorption properties. A minimum reflection loss of –43 dB was observed for the composite, where x = 0.03. A broad bandwidth of microwave absorption (with a –10 dB reflection loss as a reference) is predicted in the composite samples containing the ferrite powders of x=0.02, and x=0.03 in Ku-band frequencies.
