Researchers at Zagazig University Target Physics Research (Magnetoelectric and magnetic studies of the Bi1-xCaxFeO3 multiferrioc system)

August 19, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Fresh data on Physics Research are presented in a new report. According to news originating from Zagazig, Egypt, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Bi1-xCaxFeO3 was prepared by the flash autocombustion combustion technique. X-ray diffraction analysis showed a Rhombohedrally distorted hexagonal perovskite structure with space group R3c."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Zagazig University, "The particle size and shape were studied by transmission electron microscope. Magnetization studies at room temperature showed superparamagnetic behavior for the prepared nanoparticles. Magnetoelectric coefficient characterized as magnetic field - induced polarization was investigated."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The Lande factor (g), resonance field (B-r), relaxation time (tau), and the energy between two adjacent degenerate spin energy levels (Delta E) were estimated from the electron spin resonance spectra."
