Complex dielectric behaviours in $BiFeO_{3}/Bi_{2}Fe_{4}O_{9}$ ceramics

  title={Complex dielectric behaviours in \$BiFeO\_\{3\}/Bi\_\{2\}Fe\_\{4\}O\_\{9\}\$ ceramics},
  author={G Orr and Andrey Gorychev and Paul Ben Ishai},
The complex dielectric permittivity of a sintered ceramic tablet consisting of 70.5 % BiFeO3 and 27.7% Bi2Fe4O9 was analyzed as a function of temperature from -120 °C to 230 °C. The results reveal a complicated dielectric response with temperature activated relaxation features. They also reveal a ferroelectric phase transition that decayed with repeated heating cycles of the tablet. The source of the behaviour is assigned to relaxation processes happening along the grain boundaries of differing…

Dielectric properties of BiFeO3 ceramics obtained from mechanochemically synthesized nanopowders
Dielectric behaviour of BiFeO3 ceramics, obtained by hot-pressing of nanopowders produced by mechanochemical synthesis from Bi2O3 and Fe2O3 oxides (weight ratio 2:1), was studied in the temperature
Electrical properties of bismuth ferrites: Bi2Fe4O9 and Bi25FeO39
Abstract Bi2Fe4O9 was prepared by solid-state reaction and the electrical properties measured by impedance spectroscopy. After annealing in O2 at 900 °C, Bi2Fe4O9 is an electrically-homogeneous
Phase transitions in multiferroic BiFeO3 crystals, thin-layers, and ceramics: enduring potential for a single phase, room-temperature magnetoelectric ‘holy grail’
Magnetic phase transitions in multiferroic bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) induced by magnetic field, epitaxial strain, and composition modification are considered. These transitions from a spatially
Electrical Properties of Stoichiometric BiFeO3 Prepared by Mechanosynthesis with Either Conventional or Spark Plasma Sintering
Phase-pure powders of stoichiometric BiFeO3 have been prepared by mechanosynthesis. Ceramics sintered by either conventional heating in air or spark plasma sintering (SPS) followed by oxidative
On the Thermodynamic Stability of BiFeO3
The thermodynamic stability of BiFeO3 is investigated by high temperature X-ray diffraction and isothermal heat treatment of Bi2O3−Fe2O3 powder mixture as well as phase pure BiFeO3 prepared by a wet
The electronic properties of complex oxides of bismuth with the mullite structure
Abstract Bismuth forms double oxides with the oxides of aluminium, gallium, iron and manganese, all of which have the mullite structure. Since other bismuth-based complex oxides show useful
Physics and Applications of Bismuth Ferrite
BiFeO3 is perhaps the only material that is both magnetic and a strong ferroelectric at room temperature. As a result, it has had an impact on the field of multiferroics that is comparable to that of
Large bulk polarization and regular domain structure in ceramic BiFeO3
Regularly twinned domain structures are observed by scanning piezoforce microscopy on single crystalline grains of BiFeO3 ceramics being grown by a special low temperature sintering process. The
Thermodynamic potential and phase diagram for multiferroic bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3)
We construct a Landau–Ginzburg thermodynamic potential, and the corresponding phase diagram for pristine and slightly doped bismuth ferrite, a ferroelectric antiferromagnet at room temperature. The
Room temperature electrical manipulation of giant magnetoresistance in spin valves exchange-biased with BiFeO3.
It is shown that the exchange bias can be electrically controlled through a change in the relative proportion of 109° domain walls and proposed solutions toward a reversible process.
