Abstract

Polycrystalline samples of Bi0.9Eu0.1FeO3, Bi0.9Gd0.1FeO3, and Bi0.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3 ceramics were synthesized by a solid-state reaction method, followed by rapid quenching to room temperature. Bio(0.9)Eu(0.1)FeO(3) shows higher magnetization than Bi0.9Gd0.1FeO3 and Bi5.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3. This can be explained by lattice distortion, and the change in the statistical distribution of Fe3+ /Fe2+. Similarly, ferroelectric polarization of Bi0.9Eu0.1FeO3 was found to be higher than that of Bi0.9Gd0.1FeO3 and Bi0.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3. However, the absolute value of the magnetocapacitance of Bi0.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3 (similar to 1.6%) was found to be higher than that of Bi0.9Eu0.1FeO3 (similar to 1.3%) and Bi0.9Gd0.1FeO3 (similar to 1.1%). In addition, the quadratic component of magnetoelectric coupling is higher for Bi0.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3, which makes Bi0.9Eu0.05Gd0.05FeO3 attractive for further study.
