The Origin of Enhanced Room Temperature Ferromagnetism in Ba Doped BiFeO3

Abstract

Bi0.74Ba0.30FeO3 and Bi0.74Ba0.30Fe0.95Ti0.05O3 ceramics have been synthesized by a tartaric acid modified sol–gel method. Bi0.74Ba0.3FeO3 has a pseudo-tetragonal structure, while triclinic distortion was induced by the 0.05 Ti substitution from the Rietveld refinements on the X-ray diffraction patterns. The addition of Ti significantly reduced the leakage current. Compared with the remnant magnetization (M r=0.001 emu/g) and coercivity (H c=80 Oe) of pure BiFeO3, the M r and H c of Bi0.74Ba0.3FeO3 are strongly enhanced to 0.16 emu/g and 4.2 kOe, respectively. The Ti substitution has little influence on the magnetic properties. From the temperature-dependent magnetization and differential scanning calorimeter measurements, we conclude that the enhanced ferromagnetism in Ba doped BiFeO3 might be attributed to the trace impurity of BaFe12O19.
