Title: Structural and magnetic properties of Ni-doped SnO{sub 2}

Samples of Ni doped SnO{sub 2} nanocrystalline were successfully prepared by chemical co-precipitation method. X-ray diffraction pattern infers that Sn{sub 1-x}Ni{sub x}O{sub 2} (x=0.00, 0.10, 0.15 and 0.20) samples are in single phase with tetragonal structure (P4{sub 2}/mnm). Raman spectroscopy reveals the observed phonon modes of SnO{sub 2} are at about 387-397, and 559 - 572 cm{sup −1}. For Sn{sub 0.9}Ni{sub 0.1}O{sub 2}, these peaks are shifted to higher wave numbers, while to that for Sn{sub 0.85}Ni{sub 0.15}O{sub 2} and Sn{sub 0.8}Ni{sub 0.2}O{sub 2}, peaks are shifted to the lower wave numbers. The frequency dependent dielectric constant decreases with the increase in the frequency and becomes constant at high frequencies for all compositions of Ni substituted SnO{sub 2}. The magnetization curve confirms the paramagnetic nature of all Ni doped SnO{sub 2} samples.
