Abstract

B1-xLaxFeO3 (x = 0.0, 0.025) crystallites were prepared by chemical solution route. XRD analysis confirmed the phase formation of the materials. Thermal characterization was done by DSC-TGA to confirm crystallization and thermal behavior for phase development. Morphological studies by FESEM showed the agglomerated nature of the ferrite and EDX analysis confirmed the degree of doping. FTIR studies were done to determine the molecular signature of both undoped and doped sample.
