Currently, there is a rising demand for rare-earth elements for a broad range of industrial applications. However, the risk of supply of these strategic materials due to political restrictions, the high environmental impact of their extraction as well as price oscillations have motivated many researchers in finding viable alternatives. We propose nanometric cobalt ferrite (CoxFe3-xO4) as candidate to achieve this goal. On one hand cobalt ferrite, thanks to its large cubic magnetic anisotropy… CONTINUE READING
