  12. 12. Dilute Magnetic Ferroelectrics: A New Route to Multiferroics?<br />PhD Student: Robert Lennox, Supervisors: Dr D. C. Arnold (Kent) and Dr N. Gidopoulos (RAL)<br />Background<br />Multiferroic materials exhibit both magnetic and ferroelectric ordering with potential uses including sensors and memory devices which will be faster than current commercial memory. However, few single phase multiferroics are known since the two order parameters tend to be mutually exclusive. <br />Aims<br />Current Results<br />Doping small amounts of Mn or Fe into the wide band gap semiconductor ZnO leads to RT ferromagnetic ordering. We aim to replicate this in wideband gap ferroelectrics to synthesis new multiferroic materials<br />We have synthesised both Fe and Mn doped BaTiO3 with dopant levels 1–5 %. However in all cases we see the immergence of an undesirable hexagonal BaTiO3 phase. <br />PND data indicating mixed phase material with 42 % tetragonal and 58 % hexagonal phases<br />HRPD data<br />2 % Fe<br />Schematic representation of the spatially separated Mn ions (triangles) in ZnO lattice<br />We believe this is vacancy driven by the replacement of Ti4+ with M3+.
