Coprecipitated Cobalt Ferrite for Sensors
Abstract:In order to determine the influence of the sintering temperature on the performances of the magnetostrictive materials based sensor for stress, three series of cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) samples were prepared by coprecipitation method. These samples were sintered at 1050 °C, 1100 °C, 1150 °C. The spinel structure and the presence of the residual phases were investigated by X-ray diffractometry, scanning electron microscopy and vibrating sample magnetometry. Magnetostrictive properties of the samples were measured by strain gauge technique, in a direction which is parallel to the direction of the applied field. This study was focused on the influence of sintering temperature on magnetic properties and on magnetostriction coefficients. The study reveals that the increase of the sintering temperature increased the magnetostriction coefficients but decreased the strain derivative. Cobalt ferrite obtained by this method can be good candidates for sensors.
