Abstract :

 Nanosize powders of NiMnCu ferrites were prepared by combustion technique. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns exhibited well defined single crystalline phase and formation of spinel structure. From the XRD data lattice constant was calculated. It is found that lattice constant increases with increase of Mn content, which indicates that the present compositions obey the Vegard’s law. It is also found that due to substitution of small amount of Mn average grain size, initial permeability, saturation magnetization and dielectric constant enhanced. On the other hand, resistivity showed opposite trend. The DC magnetization showed that at room temperature all samples are in ferrimagnetic state.
