Title: Structural transformation in nano-structured CuAl{sub x}Cr{sub x}Fe{sub 2-2x}O{sub 4} system

Polycrystalline spinel ferrite system CuAl{sub x}Cr{sub x}Fe{sub 2-2x}O{sub 4} (x=0.2, 0.6) was synthesized by solid-state reaction route. Nanoparticles of the samples have been prepared by using high energy ball milling technique with different milling durations and characterized by X-ray Diffraction and Tunneling Electron Microscope. It is observed that the structural transformation occurred from Cubic to tetragonal and particle size varied between 29 nm -14 nm with increase of milling time.
