Original Paper


Optical and magnetic properties of Nd-doped Co3O4 are investigated by the microwave method. Nd-doped Co3O4 for structural, morphological, and photoluminescence properties were analyzed by using UV–visible spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. Nd-doped Co3O4 magnetic nanoparticles were spherical in shape. The crystal/particle size of the nanoparticles is around 18–23 nm approximately. However, Nd-doped Co3O4 synthesis and the optical properties are correlated to their magnetic abilities, along with their performance when introduced to other properties from Nd (0.01, 002, and 0.03) dopants.
