Abstract

We consider the influence of the magnetic cation (Ni2+) substitution on the structural and magnetic properties of Ba0.5Sr1.5Zn2-xNixFe12O22 (x = 0.8, 1, 1.5) powders. The powders were synthesized by using the citric-acid sol–gel auto-combustion method. Their ac-magnetization was measured in an ac-magnetic field with an amplitude of 10 Oe and a frequency of 1000 Hz to detect any magnetic phase transitions. A strong influence of the Ni-substitution on the magnetic properties was thus observed. A magnetic phase transition from a helicoidal to a ferrimagnetic spin order at 284 K was observed for the sample Ba0.5Sr1.5Zn0.5Ni1.5Fe12O22. The magnetic-phase transition from conical spin order to hellicoidal spin order was registered at 149 K and 177 K for x = 0.8 and x = 1, respectively. Triple hysteresis loops were observed for all samples at 4.2 K, which indicates the presence of two kinds of ferromagnetic states with different magnetization values. © 2020 Elsevier B.V.
