Abstract

(1-x) Pb (Fe2/3W1/3) O3-xBiFeO3 single phase solid solution was synthesized by sol-gel method. The crystal structures and morphologies were studied by X-ray diffractometry and scanning electron microscopy, respectively, and its magnetic performance was also investigated. The results show that the addition of BiFeO3 decreases the sintering temperature of Pb(Fe2/3W1/3) O3 from 700 to 550°C, as the doping coefficient x increases from 0.1 to 0.6. When x ≤0.6, the crystal structure is confirmed as perovskite type indicating a single phase solid solution, whereas it cannot keep the same perovskite structure when x > 0.6. The single phase solid solution 0.75Pb (Fe2/3W1/3) O3-0.25BiFeO3 displays better magnetization than any others when x=0.25.
