Zinc-doped lithium ferrite nanoparticles with general formula Li0.46Zn0.04Fe2.5O4 were prepared by Co-precipitation method and their thin films were grown by spin coating method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) confirmed the spinel structure of the synthesized samples. Fine morphology of the films was obtained by controlling the parameters. AC electrical properties including dielectric constant (έ), dielectric loss tangent (tanδ), AC electrical conductivity (σac), and impedance (Z) were studied as a function of frequency at different temperatures and at 1 MHz frequency in a temperature range of 40–500 °C. Dielectric constant, dielectric loss tangent, and ac electrical conductivity showed the decreasing trend with increase in temperature while opposite trend was observed for impedance. Zinc-doped Li-ferrite has better absorption properties in the studied frequency and temperature range as compared to that of Li-ferrites.
