Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterCommunication


Nano sized strontium hexaferrite is synthesized using a hydrothermal flow synthesis, at temperature and pressure above waters critical point. The nano particles are hexagonal platelets, with the easy axis of magnetization along the short c-axis of the platelet. The nano powders are normally pressed and annealed to form mechanically stable pellets. This study uses In-situ Powder X-Ray Diffraction (PXRD) to examine the particle growth during annealing of the powder, with emphasis on the ratio between the axes of the platelets (a/c-ratio). By applying an external magnetic field before annealing, the particles will align along the field lines of the external magnet, and the contact surfaces along the c-axis should increase. It will be examined whether the external magnetic field increases the growth along the c-axis relative to the a/b-axis, compared to annealing without prior magnetization.
