Title: Ferromagnetic-like behavior of Bi0.9La0.1FeO3–KBr nanocomposites

Abstract

We studied magnetostatic response of the Bi0.9La0.1FeO3– KBr composites (BLFO-KBr) consisting of nanosized (≈100nm) ferrite Bi0.9La0.1FeO3 (BLFO) conjugated with fine grinded ionic conducting KBr. When the fraction of KBr is rather small (less than 15wt%)the magnetic response of the composite is very weak and similar to that observed for the BLFO (pure KBr matrix without Bi1-xLaxFeO3 has no magnetic response as anticipated). However, when the fraction of KBr increases above 15%,the magnetic response of the composite changes substantially and the field dependence of magnetization reveals ferromagnetic-like hysteresis loop with a remnant magnetization about 0.14emu/g and coercive field about 1.8Tesla (at room temperature). Nothing similar to the ferromagnetic-like hysteresis loop can be observed in Bi1-zLazFeO3 ceramics with z≤0.15, which magnetization quasi-linearly increases with magnetic field. Different physical mechanisms were considered to explain the unusual experimental results for BLFO-KBr nanocomposites, but only those among them, which are highly sensitive to the interaction of antiferromagnetic Bi0.9La0.1FeO3 with ionic conductor KBr, can be relevant.
