Magnetic Property of Rutile Ti0.94A0.06O2 (A=Li, Mg, K) Compounds

Abstract: Our purpose is to study role of ionic radii of non-magnetic dopants; Li+ (0.68 Å), Mg2+ (0.72 Å) and K+ (1.38 Å) on the magnetic property of rutile TiO2 compound. The Ti0.94A0.06O2 (A=Li, Mg, K) compounds have been synthesized via solid state route method at equilibrium. The structural analyses of X-ray diffraction pattern reveals that the doping of Li and Mg lead to Ti site substitution and K doping lead to core shell kind of structure. The magnetic property measurement by SQUID magnetometer indicate that all compounds exhibit weak paramagnetism with highest paramagnetic moment of ~ 0.3 µB / ion for K doped compound but no long-range ferromagnetic ordering. We have discussed the observed magnetism in correlation with the nature of substitution.
