  • Abstract

    FT-IR spectra of Ni1-sZnsFe2O4 spinel ferrite, s changed by 0.2 according to 0.0 ≤ s ≤ 1.0, have been analyzed in the frequency range (350−1000)−1. Six polycrystalline ferrites samples were synthesized using the conventional standard double sintering ceramic method. Two main absorption bands were observed, their positions were found to be strongly dependent on s-value. The high frequency band in the range 550-600 cm−1 and a low frequency band at around 400 cm−1 were assigned to tetrahedral Td and octahedral Oh sites, respectively, of spinel lattice. Force constant (FC) was calculated for Tdand Oh sites and was found to decrease with increasing Zn ions. Threshold frequency νth for the electronic transition was determined and found to increase with increasing Zn ions. Cations distribution for the prepared mixed ferrite was concluded based on the FT-IR spectra. The ionic radii for each site were correlated to the cations distribution of the given ferrite.
