Assessment of the critical behavior in the multiferroic Bi0.8Ba0.1Er0.1Fe0.96Cr0.02Co0.02O3 material, multi-substitution effect on magnetic and Mössbauer properties



Abstract The magnetic properties, Mossbauer and the critical behavior of the compound Bi0.8Ba0.1Er0.1Fe0.96Cr0.02Co0.02O3 prepared by sol-gel are the subject of this study. The compound has an R3c structure and exhibits a ferromagnetic to paramagnetic phase transition c.a. 574 K. A theoretical adjustment of the hysteresis cycles at room temperature show two magnetic contributions: Ferromagnetic (FM) and Antiferromagnetic (AFM) with a predominance of the first contribution. Mossbauer spectroscopy revealed two Fe3+ cations differently coordinated. Magnetic measurements versus magnetic field reveal that the sample exhibits a second order magnetic phase transition. The Curie temperature \u200b\u200band the critical exponents (β, γ and δ) were determined by different techniques. These values \u200b\u200bare in agreement with the ones predicted by the mean field model.
