Title: Dose dependent electrical and structural properties of BiFeO{sub 3} nanoparticles under electron irradiation

The paper deals with the effect of electron irradiation on the structural and electrical properties of BiFeO{sub 3} nanoparticles synthesized by standard sol-gel method. The samples were subjected to electron irradiation using a Microtron accelerator. The effects of irradiation on structural morphology viz grain size, microstrain and dislocation have been studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The current density of the samples at various doses of high energy electrons was also studied. It was observed that electrical conductivity depends on electron dose.
