Research and Development :
Area of Expertise Research and Development activities & Significant recent contributions
Magnetic materials, Nanostructured ferrites, Multiferroic Materials, Composites. Recently, we have standardized the method of preparation for pure phase Bismuth Ferrite. The crystal structure and magnetic phase diagram for co-doped bismuth ferrite has been demonstrated. We have successfully shown the ferromagnetic contribution in Bismuth Ferrite by Arrot plot technique. Quantification of mixed crystal phase in the bismuth ferrite has been demonstrated by XRD and neutron diffraction. We have calculated the anisotropy of cobalt ferrite nanoparticle which will help to use the cobalt ferrite in the industry.
