Facile mechanochemical synthesis and magnetic properties of pervoskite YCrxFe1-xO3, (0≤x≤1)


Single-phase samples of YCrxFe1-xO3 were synthesized by a mechanochemical method. X-ray diffraction data show linear reduction in the lattice parameters of YCrxFe1-xO 3 perovskites with the Cr content, indicating that Cr ions substitute for Fe ions to form a solid solution. Magnetic measurements show hysteresis loops at 5K. The substitution of Cr for Fe enhances the magnetization for up to x=0.33 Cr doping level. For higher doping levels, 0.33
