Effect of Barium on the Properties of Lead Hexaferrite
An analysis of the properties of a family based on lead-barium substitution in the M-type hexaferrite is presented. The samples were prepared by the ceramic method according to the general formula Pb x Ba1−x Fe12O19. The barium content was varied with x=0.1, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7, and 0.9; no secondary phases were detected in any composition. Rietveld refinement analysis was done in order to determinate crystallographic parameters, content of phases and degree of substitution. The effects of the barium on the morphological and magnetic properties were studied. Iron Mössbauer spectroscopy was used for determining the hyperfine parameters of the iron nucleus and their environment; also, the cationic occupancy was evaluated and the results were checked with X-ray refinement results.
