Abstract

Low-cost and scalable sol–gel chemistry was employed to obtain ferroelectric-ferrimagnetic BaTiO3-CoFe2O4 nanocomposites. In a novel one-pot synthesis method, both the constituent phases of nanocomposites are formed during the same time and symbiotically participate to each other's growth. X-ray powder diffraction evidences the phase purity of the systems, with average crystallite sizes in the order of 20 nm for the BaTiO3 phase. The optimization of the synthesis conditions, precursors, and chemical agents for nanoscale BaTiO3 and BaTiO3-CoFe2O4 nanocomposites is presented, together with the magnetic and/or dielectric properties of the obtained materials. BaTiO3-CoFe2O4 nanocomposites with up to 20% CoFe2O4 volume fractions were found to display ferrimagnetic properties at room temperature akin to those of CoFe2O4, while preserving a dielectric behavior reminiscent of BaTiO3. Preliminary results describing the spin coating of BaTiO3 and BaTiO3-CoFe2O4 nanocomposites as thin films are also reported.
