Synthesis, Morphology and Magnetic Characterization of Zn Ferrite Powders
We synthesized Zn0.8Fe2.2O4 ferrite powders by coprecipitation and hydrothermal techniques and analyzed the mor-phology and magnetic properties. The morphology and structure of the Zn ferrite powders were investigated using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and X-ray Diffraction (XRD) identifying the crystallization planes. Magnetic hysteresis curves were obtained for the Zn ferrites samples.
