Autocombustion Synthesis of Nanocrystalline Gadolinium Iron Garnet
Nanocrystalline gadolinium iron garnet (Gd3Fe5O12) was successfully synthesized using auto combustion process. Simultaneous Thermogravimetric—Differential thermal analysis was carried out for the asprepared samples. The asprepared amorphous phase undergoes crystallization at 800 °C upon calcination, which is well below the phase formation temperature required by other synthesis methods. The powder X-ray diffraction pattern indicated an average grain size below 50 nm for all the annealed samples. The Curie temperature of nanocrystalline gadolinium iron garnet is similar to the bulk samples.
