Correlation between Lattice strain and Physical (Magnetic, Dielectric and Magnetodielectric) properties of Perovskite-Spinel (Bi0.85La0.15FeO3)(1-x)- (NiFe2O4)(x) Composites 
Journal of Applied Physics  
Lattice strain, Perovskite-Spinel 
Multiferroic composites are the current research interest due to their multi-functional behavior with promising electrical and magnetic properties compared to single crystallographic phase multiferroic materials. Hence, multiferroic composites of (1−x)Bi0.85La0.15FeO3-(x)NiFe2O4 (x = 0 to 0.50) have been investigated by considering Bi0.85La0.15FeO3 as a ferroelectric phase and NiFe2O4 as a magnetic phase. The crystal structure was examined by analyzing the X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns. Different crystal structure parameters were obtained from the Rietveld refinement of XRD patterns. An increase in the lattice parameters of both Bi0.85La0.15FeO3 (BLFO) and NiFe2O4 (NFO) phases has been observed with the increase in the percentage of NiFe2O4 in the composites. Absorption peaks in Raman spectra shift toward lower frequencies with the increase in the percentage of NFO in the composite. Variation of lattice parameters and shifting of the Raman modes suggest the lattice strain at the interfaces of BLFO and NFO. Theoretical magnetizations were calculated for all composites by using the sum rule (using the magnetization of individual phases) and compared with experimentally observed magnetization. Interestingly, the experimental values of magnetizations of the composites are more than the theoretically calculated ones. It could be due to the lattice strain, which was observed from the XRD and Raman analysis.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
