Title: Interplay of structural, optical and magnetic properties in Gd doped CeO{sub 2}

In this research wok systematic investigation on the synthesis, characterization, optical and magnetic properties of Ce{sub 1-x}Gd{sub x}O{sub 2} (where x=0.02, 0.04, 0.06, and 0.10) synthesized using the Solid-state method. Structural, Optical and Magnetic properties of the samples were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-VIS-NIR spectroscopy and VSM. Fluorite structure is confirmed from the XRD measurement on Gd doped CeO{sub 2} samples. Magnetic studies showed that the Gd doped polycrystalline samples display room temperature ferromagnetism and the ferromagnetic ordering strengthens with the Gd concentration.
