Abstract

Ni substituted Li-Zn ferrites with compositional formula Li0.4-0.5xZn0.2NixFe2.4-0.5xO4 where 0.02 ≤ x ≤ 0.1 in steps of 0.02 was synthesized by using citrate precursor method. X-ray diffraction was used to confirm the spinel phase. A series of sample was given sintering at 1080C and another series given sintering at 1080C after a pre-sintering at a temperature of 600C. The dielectric constant was investigated as a function of composition and frequency for the two series. Room temperature dielectric constant showed a decrease with addition of Ni2+ ions. It was explained in terms of space charge polarization and koops two layer model. For both the series the variation in dielectric constant with frequency showed dispersion. The possible mechanism responsible for the above behavior is being discussed.
