Abstract

We have successfully synthesized CoxFe3-xO4 (x = 1) and have performed FeMössbauer, x-ray diffraction and magnetization measurements. In order to explore the potential applications of this ferrite, it is important to investigate the systematic compositional changes in structural and magnetic properties by employing the above techniques along with Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. This will help in understanding their magneto-mechanical properties and in tuning the ferrite’s properties for magnetoelastic pressure sensors. Our interest in these materials is due to the exciting possibilities for this electrical sensor to be small, rugged, corrosion-resistant and energy efficient, unlike a mechanical pressure sensor.
