Impact of rare earth europium (RE-Eu3+) ions substitution on microstructural, optical and magnetic properties of CoFe2−xEuxO4 nanosystems
In this study, pure cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) nanoparticles and europium doped CoFe2O4 (CoFe2−xEuxO4; x = 0.1, 0.2, 0.3) nanoparticles were synthesized by the precipitation and hydrothermal approach. The impact of replacing trivalent iron (Fe3+) ions by trivalent rare earth europium (RE-Eu3+) ions on the microstructure, optical and magnetic properties of the produced CoFe2O4 nanoparticles was studied. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and ... Read more
