  • Structural and dielectric properties of polycrystalline YMnO{sub 3} (x = 0.0, 0.10 and 0.20) which was prepared by solid-state reaction route, have been investigated. The X-ray diffraction pattern reveals that all the samples are in single phase and show hexagonal structure with P63cm space group. The particle size decreases with increase in Sm doping while to that X-ray density increases with increasing x. The dielectric constant (ε’) of Y{sub 1-x}Sm{sub x}MnO{sub 3} measured in the frequency range 10 Hz to 1MHz is much higher at lower frequencies (≤ 1KHz) and its value decreases with enhanced frequency. At very high frequencies, ε’more » becomes frequency independent and is attributed to Maxwell Wagner type of interfacial polarization model. A very high value of dielectric constant ∼18642 is observed for x = 10%. The dielectric loss (tan δ) decreases wit increase in Sm doping.« less
  • Graphical abstract: The Cr{sub x}Ce{sub 1−x}PO{sub 4} (x = 0.00, 0.08, 0.10 and 0.20) nanorods synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. - Highlights: • Cr{sub x}Ce{sub 1−x}PO{sub 4} (x = 0.00–0.20) nanorods were synthesized by hydrothermal method. • Mean crystallite size of the products decreases with Cr-content. • Obvious improvements of the electrical conductivity comparatively to CePO4. - Abstract: Cr{sub x}Ce{sub 1−x}PO{sub 4} (x = 0.00–0.20) nanorods were synthesized using the hydrothermal method. The as-prepared samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared absorption spectroscopy (IR) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The XRD results revealed the formation of a pure CePO{sub 4}more » hexagonal phase. TEM images confirmed the nano-size character of the as-prepared samples. Impedance spectroscopy analysis was used to analyze the electrical behavior of samples as a function of frequency at different temperatures. The increase of Cr-amount led to an increase in the total conductivities and decreased the activation energies (E{sub a} (x = 0.00) = 1.08 eV to E{sub a} (x = 0.20) = 0.80 eV). The optical properties of Cr{sub x}Ce{sub 1−x}PO{sub 4} nanomaterials were investigated using UV–vis spectroscopy. The band-gap energy values decreased with increasing Cr-content showing a red-shift trend. The improvement of the electrical conductivity and optical properties makes the Cr{sub x}Ce{sub 1−x}PO{sub 4} nanomaterials possible candidates to be used as electrolytes in solid oxide fuel cells, in photocatalytic and photovoltaic applications.« less
  • Multiferroic Bi{sub 0.90}La{sub 0.10}Fe{sub 0.90}Co{sub 0.10}O{sub 3} ceramics have been synthesized via soft chemical co-precipitation method. From the X-ray diffraction analysis, ceramic powder sintered at 600°C was found to be single phase belonging to the rhombohedral structure with R3c space group confirmed by Rietveld analysis. Further, dielectric, Leakage and magnetic studies were performed at room temperature.
  • The present work deals with study of structural and optical properties of Silver (Ag) doped Cadmium oxide (CdO) nanostructured synthesized by Chemical Co-precipitation Techniques followed by calcinations at small temperature. The doping concentrations were changing from 0.1 to 10 at% respectively. Structural analysis study of these calcined materials is carried out by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). The optical properties of calcined samples were investigating by Fourier transformation infrared (FTIR)spectroscopy, UV-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-Vis). The structural properties analysis results revels that crystallite size are in the range of nano region and TEM results aremore » quite in accordance with XRD results.« less
  • Effect of annealing conditions on structural, magnetic and superconducting properties of Magnesium Diboride (MgB{sub 2}) bulk superconductor samples prepared by solid state route method are compared. The samples are made by taking Magnesium and Boron powders in stoichiometric ratio, grounded well and pelletized at pressure of about 10Tonnes. These pellets are annealed in both Argon and vacuum environment separately up to 800°c for two hours. Both the samples show clear superconducting transition at Tc ∼ 38 k. This is further conformed by AC/DC magnetization (M-T), Resistivity [ρ (T, H)] measurements under magnetic field up to 14 Tesla as well. Rietveldmore » refinement of X-ray diffraction of both samples conformed the MgB{sub 2} phase formation with P6/mmm space group symmetry. Scanning Electron Microscopy images of the surface revile more agglomeration of grains in case of Argon annealed samples. This result in more critical current density (J{sub c}) of Argon annealed samples than vacuum annealed one calculated from Bean's critical state model. This high Jc is explained in terms of more inter grain connectivity for Argon annealed sample than vacuum annealed sample.« less
