Structure and Electromagnetic Properties of Nanocrystalline Sr1-xDyx(ZnZr)0.5 Fe11O19
Javad-Mola Verdi Khani,
Dy+3 doped strontium ferrites Sr1-xDyx (ZnZr)0.5 Fe11O19 (x=0, 0.01, 0.02 and 0.03) were prepared by the citrate sol-gel method.
The X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), vibrating sample magnetometry, and vector network analyzer
were used for phase characterization and microwave absorption properties of obtained powders. X-ray diffraction identified that all samples
were single phase with the M-type hexagonal-ferrite structure. The average crystallite size was about 4862 nm. The microwave
electromagnetic properties of the samples were studied at the frequency range from 12 GHz to 20 GHz. It was shown that small amounts
of Dy+3 substitution could magically adjust to microwave electromagnetic parameters. The reflection loss indicates a minimum peak
when ‘‘x=0.01’’, and the peak value was 41.0 dB. Also results indicate that a wide bandwidth of microwave absorption is obtained in the
composite samples containing ferrite powders with composition ‘‘x=0.02’’ and ‘‘x=0.03’’ in Ku-band frequencies. It should be noted that
thicknesses of the absorbers are only 1.7 mm.
