    • Abstract


      Substituted lithium ferrites having the chemical formula, Li0.35Cd0.3Fe2.35O4 and Li0.35Zn0.3Fe2.35O4, with different iron (metal) contents (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10) in wt% have been prepared by solid-state technique. Complex permeability and power loss of all samples have been measured by network analyser in the frequency range of 50–5000 kHz. Magnetic properties like saturation magnetization, coercivity, retentivity have been measured by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The permeability of cadmium doped lithium ferrites exhibited higher values than zinc doped lithium ferrites. The power loss of cadmium doped lithium ferrites is lesser as compared to zinc doped lithium ferrites in the frequency range of 50–5000 kHz and at flux density of 10 mT. The behaviour of power loss with flux density has been found near about same for both series. Magnetic and power loss behaviour of the samples suggest that a small amount of Fe content can improve the properties of ferrite samples for microwave devices.
