Effect of Ti substitution in place of Fe on crystal symmetries and magnetic properties of Bi0.850La0.150FeO3 
Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids  
Keywords Crystal structure, XRD, Rietveld, Multiferroics, Cycloid spin structure 
Abstract Lanthanum (La) modified BFO crystallize to an impurity free crystal structure and enhance the multiferroic properties in BFO. The Bi0.850La0.150FeO3 is found to be optimized composition to have very good multiferroic properties. It is also reported that the Ti4+ substitution significantly reduces the leakage current in BFO. Moreover, the Ti4+ substitution is more effective than that of magnetic cations to increase the magnetization. Hence, Bi0.850La0.150Fe1-xTixO3 (x = 0.000, 0.025, 0.050, 0.100) polycrystalline samples were synthesized by the tartaric acid modified sol gel method and the effect of non-magnetic Ti substitution at the Fe-site of Bi0.850La0.150FeO3 on crystal structure and magnetic properties has been studied. The Rietveld refinements of Xray diffraction patterns indicate the structural transition from rhombohedral (R3c) to orthorhombic (Pbnm) with the increase in the substitution concentration. A gradual shift in the frequency of Fe-O stretching modes toward higher frequency in the FTIR spectra indicates a composition-driven structural transition. Magnetic properties of Bi0.850La0.150Fe1-xTixO3 polycrystalline samples were measured at room temperature with the applied field range of ± 7 T. A significant increase in the magnetization with Ti substitution is observed from the magnetic hysteresis loops. The highest magnetic moment was observed for 2.5% Ti substitution at the Fe-site in Bi0.850La0.150FeO3.

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.
