Abstract
Abstract The effects of Cr3+ doping on the crystal structure, dielectric and magnetic phase transition of SmFeO3 have been investigated. The XRD pattern analysis shows that all the peaks for SmFe1-xCrxO3 samples can be indexed according to the crystal structure of pure SmFeO3 and has a fine crystal structure. The dielectric constants of SmFe1-xCrxO3 (x = 0.1–0.3) ceramics (er = 2532, 1959, 1172) are only 0.86, 0.67 and 0.41 times that of SmFeO3 (er = 2914) at 1 kHz, respectively. The change of dielectric constant (er) with x is mainly the result of the internal barrier layer capacitor (IBLC) mechanism and the dipole oriented polarization mechanism. It shows that the M-H of SmFeO3 at room temperature exhibits a butterfly shape disappears with the increase of Cr3+ and the magnetic properties is also gradually weakened, indicating that Cr3+ doping can effectively regulate the M-H of SmFeO3. On the M-T curve, it is found that the TSR and TN of SFO decrease from 462 K to 687 K–428 K and 536 K with increasing Cr3+, respectively. It is mainly because Cr3+ doping deforms the lattice structure of SmFeO3, destroys the antiferromagnetic order of Fe3+-O2--Fe3+ and forms the exchange interaction of Fe3+-O2--Cr3+. As a result of the three actions, the stability of the G-type antiferromagnetic structure of SmFeO3 is weakened, and the magnetic transition temperatures TSR and TN are decreased.

Abstract The effects of Gd 3+ ion doping on the lattice structure and magnetism properties of polycrystalline SmFeO 3 were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and magnetic characterization. Both the magnetic susceptibility and saturation magnetization were significantly enhanced due to the larger spin number of Gd 3+ . The low doping sample of Sm 0.95 Gd 0.05 FeO 3 showed great enhancement of magnetic energy product, which may be attributed to the local exchange of different grains.

Abstract SmFe1-xMnxO3 (x = 0.1, 0.3, 0.5) is synthesized by the sol-gel method. Rietveld refinement of the X-ray diffraction pattern of the materials show crystallization in the orthorhombic structure with Pbnm space group. The complex impedance and the ac conductivity of SmFe1-xMnxO3 have been studied by the alternating current impedance spectroscopy method. The conductivity analysis implies that the materials behave as a semiconductor in the entire temperature range. It is observed that with t...

Abstract Polycrystalline Sm1−xLaxFeO3 (SLFO, x = 0, 0.05, 0.1 and 0.2) samples were prepared by solid state reaction method. The effects of La ions doping on the structure and magnetic properties of SLFO samples were studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and magnetic characterization (magnetic hysteresis loops and temperature-dependent magnetic susceptibility). La ions could be successfully doped into SLFO up to 20% without phase transformation. By diluting the magnetic Sm ions with this non-magnet...

Abstract In this paper, multiple magnetic transitions of Sm0.5Pr0.5FeO3 single crystal were systematically studied. By substituting Pr3+ in SmFeO3, spin reorientation temperature (TSR) was effectively decreased from 450 K–480 K (SmFeO3) to 180 K–220 K (Sm0.5Pr0.5FeO3). When the applied magnetic field is 500 Oe, spin switching was observed at 119 K (Tssw) for Sm0.5Pr0.5FeO3 and 180 K for SmFeO3, in which a spontaneous spin-flip transition of Sm/Pr- and Fe-sublattices at the same time, accompanied...

Abstract Grain boundaries of CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) materials have been shown to play leading role in colossal permittivity. Core-shell design is an attractive approach to make colossal dielectric capacitors by controlling the grain boundaries. Core-shell grains of CCTO surrounded by Al2O3 shell were synthesized by ultrasonic sol-gel reaction from alumina alkoxide precursor. The influence of alumina shell by comparison with bare CCTO grains was studied. Particularly, microstructure, dielectric and e...

Abstract The SmFeO3, a family member of rare earth orthoferrite, is a potential candidate for future industrial (spintronics) applications due to highest spin reorientation temperature (453-483 K) among other RFeO3 members. There are ambiguous reports on high permittivity behavior of SmFeO3. In this report, the origin of high permittivity in SmFeO3 is attributed to microstructure rather than inherent material property of material. Ceramic pellets of SmFeO3 were prepared in two different routes i...

Abstract This review summarizes dielectric studies and related experiments on ferroelectrics and multiferroics about which there has been considerable controversy in the literature, sometimes at unusually impolite and unprofessional levels. In addition it focuses attention on a new anomalous phenomenon – that of ferroelectric hysteresis loops P(E) that are parallelograms with straight sides. In some cases materials have been considered to be multiferroic when the data can be interpreted more sim...

Abstract In this article, we present the structural and magnetic studies of pristine SmFeO3 nanocrystalline ceramic samples as sintered at temperature 850 °C and 1000 °C. X-ray powder diffraction data confirm the existence of single-phase nature with orthorhombic (Pbnm) structure of the samples. The SEM image reveals spherical particles with a size range of 60–130 nm for SFO-850 and SFO-1000 samples. X-ray absorption spectroscopy studies on Fe L3,2 and O K-edges of SmFeO3 sample revealed the hom...

Abstract null null A facile electrospinning route was exploited to prepare Sm1-xHoxFeO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.07) nanofibers with orthorhombic perovskite phase. The XRD refinement technique was employed to obtain the lattice parameters of all samples. The characterization results show that the Ho partial substitution on A site ions of SmFeO3 leads to the decrease of crystallite size and increase of porosity, which is beneficial to enhance gas sensing properties of sensors. The Sm0.95Ho0.05FeO3 sensor exhib...
