    • Abstract


      Compositions of polycrystalline Zn𝑥Mg1-𝑥Fe2–𝑦Nd𝑦O4 (𝑥 = 0.00, 0.20, 0.40, 0.60, 0.80 and 1.00; 𝑦 = 0.00, 0.05 and 0.10) ferrites were prepared by standard ceramic method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and infrared absorption spectroscopy. Far infrared absorption spectra show two significant absorption bands, first at about 600 cm–1 and second at about 425 cm–1 , which were respectively attributed to tetrahedral (A) and octahedral (B) sites of the spinel. The positions of bands are found to be composition dependent. The force constants, $K_T$ and $K_O$, were calculated and plotted against zinc concentration. Compositional dependence of force constants is explained on the basis of cation–oxygen bond distances of respective sites and cation distribution.
